Where’ve You Been and Where You Going?

Standard

Whoa. It’s been a while!

Pre-TBTN we didn’t have enough time to mention what fun we had participating in the labour day parade.  Thanks to Hamilton District Labour Council for organizing such an awesome time and to Public Service Alliance Canada for inviting us to march with them!

Post TBTN we got busy with some cool stuff:

  • Our coordinating committee got busy with wrap-up activities and talking about what went well and what we want to change for next year.
  • We got busy writing thank you notes to all of our amazing TBTN donors.
  • We spoke at YWCA and White Ribbon Campaign’s #respect conference for young men and women.
  • We hung out with White Ribbon Campaign and other allies as they launch the finding of a survey they did on over 1000 Ontario men’s values towards gender based violence.
  • We facilitated a workshop with Women Centre Volunteers about supporting survivors.
  • We chatted with folks taking Smart Serve training at the YWCA about sexual harassment and how folks can take action.
  • We went to a bunch of grade nine classes to talk about sexual assault, consent and healthy relationships.
  • We helped train some new support line volunteers in the dynamics of childhood and adult sexual assault.
  • We helped (with lots of other awesome Hamilton folks!) to bring Jessica Danforth to Hamilton to speak about the awesome work she is doing.

Busy!

There is some really exciting stuff coming up soon too:

Sooooo…. We’re back near our computers now and ready to get our blog on!

 
PS.  TBTN photos coming soon!
