DAY 3AFTERNOON PLENARY
Megaphone Speakers Bureau
Sekani Dakelth is from the Tl'azt'en Nation and calls the Downtown Eastside home. She is passionate about trans rights, sex worker rights and harm reduction. Like many of her peers, Sekani knows firsthand how stigma around drug use acts as a barrier to accessing healthcare. She has worked as a Megaphone vendor for years and officially joined the team in 2018, to help build the Speakers Bureau. Through that work, she’s dedicated to spreading awareness of everyone’s right to healthcare and challenging audiences to look past the sometimes narrow ideas they have of drug users in that and other settings.
