The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (or the Global 16 Days Campaign)
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (or the Global 16 Days Campaign) calls for the elimination of gender-based violence worldwide. Join us and take action by participating in community events and conversations from Nov. 25 to Dec. 10 to help eliminate gendered violence and support those in need.
Content warning: Please note that the memorial ceremony and community events will mention different forms of sexual violence including sexual assault, sexual harassment and murder. Please prioritize your health and well-being and take the space that you need for each event.
Building SAFER SPACES Toolkit
To foster a culture where attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate sexual violence are rejected, survivors are supported, community members are educated and those who commit incidents of sexual violence are held accountable.
We trust in the power of advocacy and education. We believe in diverse and safe accessible services as they are fundamental to social change and empowering survivors. At the Centre, our work is driven by our communities needs. Survivors and all those affected by sexual violence will be provided with compassionate services, dignity, privacy, and respect.
