So much is happening!!

...And we want you to be a part of it. Upcoming Events are listed down below, but here's the biggest Ladle news: 

We're eyeing Sexton... our Sexton Coordinator (who is a Sexton student btw) and our Sexton committee need to hear the voices of Sexton students. What do you need from The Loaded Ladle on your campus? Please inform our process as we get ready to hopefully, lay down some roots! 

We signed the historic declaration to divest from policing and prisons. Read it here, and if you believe too, you can sign it too! 

We're serving 70+ people between 12:00 and 1:30 Tuesday through Friday! Please make sure you line up super responsibly so we are safe and don't get into trouble. We're going to need some help... there's still 8 volunteer shifts up for grabs next week!

From our NSPIRG friends: 

We are thrilled to announce that NSPIRG & Wellness Within are teaming up to offer Queer-Centric Doula Training in 2021!

We are working to create educational training material/organize a doula training to help doulas better support 2SLGBTQ+ folks! We are looking for input on the positive experiences and barriers folks have faced, to help guide our team and create the most meaningful resources possible.

Special Thanks to Wellness Within and Tegan and Sara Foundation for partnering with us on this amazing journey!

Sweet Affirmations

From Planned Parenthood Toronto and Teen Health Source

"No act of resistance to homophobia, biphobia, queerphobia or transphobia is too small. All resistance is revolutionary."

"Sometimes bravery is 'I will try again tomorrow'. "

"My gender is not up for debate by others."

"I carry my experiences with me, and that's okay."

"I honour that my relationship with my body is full of many emotions, gifts, and challenges."
