Are you a woman (trans, cis-gendered, two spirit identified) who has at some point been found unfit to stand trial, or not criminally responsible on account of a mental health issue? Have you had a hard time finding housing? Do you know what landlords can and can’t use to deny you from housing, or evict you?
The Empowerment Council is looking for 10-12 women who have been involved with the mental health forensic system or the criminal justice system to participate in a free, six-session education and advocacy workshop. Together we will share information about or experiences and learn more about our housing rights, child services and income supports.
Classes will take place on November 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 , 28.
Participation in all classes is mandatory, and there will be some small homework assignments. To apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 416-535-8501 Ext. 33013
Refreshments will be provided
