The Rainbow Equality Campaign is being built on the success of the Rainbow Week of Action.

The first National Rainbow Week of Action was held May 11 to May 17, 2024. The Society of Queer Momentum, in partnership with Fierté Canada Pride and the Enchanté Network, and powered by local advocates and organizations across Canada, brought together 2SLGBTQIA+ advocates and allies speaking up for a more free, equal and socially just future — for 2SLGBTQIA+ people and everyone in Canada.

With anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate on the rise across Canada, we — as queer and trans people, allies, friends and families — are speaking up. We are urging elected officials and governments at every level to take action to advance rainbow equality, address hate and advocate for a more free and equal future for all our families.

During the Rainbow Week of Action, we encouraged governments and elected officials at every level to take action for Rainbow Equality and address rising anti-2SLGBTQIA+ hate. As such, we have identified calls to action for every level of government. These calls to action can be reviewed here.
