Our hearts and minds know the truth. It’s possible, it’s achievable, and it’s right before us:
'A future free from all forms of gender-based violence and discrimination' and we can tell you where this future is found: it’s at the cornerstone of social justice; and at the intersections of gender equity and male allyship.
The path is marked: The Change Begins Here via https://www.whiteribbon.ca/
In honour of the #WhiteRibbonCampaign, there will be white ribbons placed throughout the community to allow community members to wear a white ribbon to show their ongoing support to end Domestic Violence.
