Stride Advocates in Calgary 

Somali Canadian Society of Calgary has partnered with John Humphrey Center on the Stride Advocacy Project to strength community based advocacy that relates and navigates systems and institutions while building a network of advocates at the community level and across the province.

 

These advocates will support grassroots agencies as allies as well as provide important support in the community by supporting self advocacy and education. They will be engaged in the delivery of community clinics that aim to create a safe space for people to be heard and supported.
