Reaching Out Winnipeg

Raise money for Reaching Out Winnipeg

Reaching Out Winnipeg (ROW) is a program started in 2012 to promote resettlement of LGBT refugees to Winnipeg.  We also provide support and guidance to asylum seekers during the process of being recognized as refugees or appealing deportation.  LGBT people face serious persecution and discrimination in many countries around the world. Few people know how bad it really is. There are many countries with specific laws designed to persecute LGBT people.

Most resettled persons are supported financially abroad while waiting to flee to Canada as they are not allowed to work and have no resources to meet basic needs for food, shelter, medical care, etc. 

ROW operates a website providing basic information for people interested in supporting resettlement. The website also provides information to help sexual or gender minority people who face intolerable persecution through the refugee process.  We receive many email requests for help or advice and always provide a listening ear and compassionate responses to dozens of sexual and gender minority people who face intolerable persecution in their home countries.
