Why are we Rallying?

Every day, LGBTQ+ people across the world are forcefully displaced due to violent and hateful legislation. Across Canada, unprecedented numbers of LGBTQ+ refugees are struggling to access basic needs like housing and healthcare. At The 519 – Canada’s largest 2SLGBTQ+ organization – we’ve seen a tripling of the number of refugee claimants accessing service over the past year.

LGBTQ+ people seeking refuge in Canada contribute so much to our communities and our country. Join us in calling for the urgent support needed to build opportunities for the most vulnerable and to build a stronger Toronto for everyone.
