Sparking change with Reclaiming Our Time

London, Ontario, Thursday, March 28, 2019 - Reclaiming Our Time is a student-lead, day-long conference that will generate conversations about the experiences LGBTQ+ students regularly endure.

The conference takes place at Fanshawe College on Friday, March 29.

The day will feature keynote presentations from internationally recognized speakers who have addressed Columbia University, United Nations Children's Fund, World Economic Forum and featured on CNN, CBC and the BBC.
