We are not ready to put away their protest signs just yet...are you?

On January 21, 2017, tens of thousands of Canadians took to the streets from coast to coast, and in Washington, D.C., joining together to defend women’s equality and other causes. We know there are events across the country that women and allies need to know about. Our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Any time women gather with a collective intention, it's a powerful thing. Let's see this happen across Canada!

  • YW Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

    • Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 11:00 AM
    • YWCA Calgary in Calgary, AB, Canada

    YW WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES® Presented by Shoppers Drug Mart is an annual fundraising event that asks women and men to STEP UP and take a stand to help break the cycle of family violence in our city. Although family violence is a very serious matter, this fun and light-hearted event asks participants to challenge each other to participate and help women and their children walk away from family violence.

    Domestic abuse has steadily been rising in Calgary with the last few years showing 34% more incidents than the 5-year average. In fact, police responded to 3,089 domestic violence calls in the first three quarters of 2017.

    On Tuesday, September 18, hundreds of Calgarians will put on a pair of high heels and strut down Stephen Avenue to support women and their families. Individuals register online and commit to fundraising $1,000 each so we can reach the fundraising goal of $250,000.

    Through emergency shelter, housing, counselling, outreach and family access services, YW Calgary strives to enable women and children to live free of violence. We provide them with a safe and secure place to stay, case management, referrals and support while taking steps to cope with the trauma and crisis in their lives. We also help men in our adult programs, promoting long-term solutions to the issues.

    To do this we need your help, challenge yourself or someone else today to fundraise and change the lives of hundreds of women and children trapped in domestic abuse.

    Then, at 7, there will be community mentors here to speak to the cause. TBA (but lets just say there will be some fantastic community leaders!) After, will be releasing doves with community members handprints, honouring the lives affected from domestic abuse. (we've got A LOT of balloons- going to be quite the spectacle!) 

    Also, snacks! Skip the evening TV and popcorn, come chow down on some delicious goodies provided and hang out with some awesome community members!!

    Looking forward to seeing you!
