Gender-based violence is all around us — and the reality that family violence, femicide, and sexual assault rates have gone up over the past two years makes action more urgent than ever. To help, the Canadian Women’s Foundation created the Signal for Help — a simple one-handed gesture that can be used to reach out for support without leaving a digital trace. Join for a special session on how you can help as a Signal for Help Responder, to learn more about gender-based violence, and to learn how to respond and support someone facing abuse in a safe, supportive way.

What to Expect:

This event features a structured workshop and a Q&A style panel discussion diving into the topic of gender-based violence in a safe and judgement-free space. This event is open to all folks from all walks of life and is an all ages event. All proceeds from the event are being donated to the Canadian Women's Foundation to support their mission to achieve gender justice.
