Special Sticker Series: 'Stick' Up for Trans Rights

Updated: Mar 1

Tansi Ninôtemik,


In support of tawâw outreach collective, this week's blog posts will each highlight a sticker by Blog Author Olive Bensler (in collaboration with tawâw) to highlight leaders in Indigenous harm reduction and human rights work in Edmonton. 100% of sticker sale proceeds will go to tawâw; all the designs are available here.


If you would like to make an order larger than 20 stickers (of this design or any others listed for this campaign), please reach out directly to rbensler@ualberta.ca).


Protect Trans Kids: Brad & Maven LaFortune

Today's sticker highlights Bradley LaFortune and his daughter Maven. Brad is the executive director at Public Interest Alberta and a passionate advocate for housing as a human right, harm reduction, and 2SLGBTQ+ rights. 


Bensler first encountered Brad in the midst of encampment clearings, protests, and -60 weather. They were immediately impressed by how engaged Maven was in his work. This sticker depicts her standing next to him at a protest organized by Rowan Morris in support of trans youth.


Still, independent of Maven, Brad has an impressive resume and a demonstrated commitment to organizing with love, kindness, and understanding. Whether it is spending the last few weeks in Wet'suwet'en territory or marching the streets of Edmonton, Brad is a pillar behind several of the most important human rights campaigns in support of Alberta's current and future generations. You can find the Brad & Maven sticker here.


Keep your eye out for the next post in this week's special series. You can see yesterday's post here.


Until next time,


The ReconciliACTION YEG team
