Get Involved: Selfies to Support Survivors

Standard

Unless it’s suddenly changed, we’ll be learning the verdict in the Ghomeshi case in a bit more than a week: Thursday, March 24th.

We’re encouraging folks to post selfies or pics of a group of folks with the hashtag #IBelieveSurvivors or #WeBelieveSurvivors on the day of the verdict.
