Insights from a session


Our award-winning series continues.

Liam Miranda, MPP'21


“A significant portion of research doesn’t reflect who LQBTQ folk are and can run the risk of misrepresenting or misunderstanding the challenges our community can face. Innovative, ethical and thoughtful research is a powerful tool in the policy process. I’m excited to be at Sanford figuring out the best way to equip advocates and community members with the research that can help advance their important work.”
