SACHA had a very busy weekend!
On Saturday we excited to be at Hammer City Roller Girls’ final home game of the season. SACHA volunteers chatted with fans about the work that we do and invited folks to Take Back the Night and the male ally solidarity event.
Folks at the SACHA table shared how they are going to demand a world without violence:
By Rallying @ TBTN!
By believing survivors of sexual assault
By speaking up and not being a by-stander!!
SACHA truly appreciates the support of Hammer City Roller Girls and can’t wait for them to bring the awesome as they volunteer as marshals at TBTN!
Check out the amazing words of support that HCRG shared during the launch of the It’s Time…
On Sunday we facilitated a workshop for CYO Camp Brebeuf staff who shared how they will demand a world without violence:
Women should get equal treatment!
Refuse to gossip.
Help not hurt
Asking someone if something is wrong will be a safe and happier world!
Be attentive – keep an eye out for the signs.
Hugs and cuddles
Don’t judge without knowledge!
Don’t gossip/spread rumours about other people.
By understanding that we all have baggage and learn to except each other for it!
Open your eyes, mind and heart!
Not ignoring or dismissing violence when I see it!
Treat everyone equally!
Make sure everyone feels loved, respected, important and listened to!
Fight for gender EQUALITY! Women should feel better about sticking up for themselves.
Remind people they are LOVED
Help people discover their self-worth.
Speak out in conversations with friends. Don’t shy away from uncomfortable topics.
No means no!
Thanks to everyone who made this weekend so amazing!
