We invite college enrolled women to participate in this 4 hour self-defense program offered by the longest running women’s self-defense organization in Canada. This program will run over 2 sessions and includes frank discussions about violence against women and children along with verbal & physical resistance strategies. This program recognizes and celebrates our diversity, feminist principles, the empowerment of women and children while expressly rejecting victim blaming so often present in society. Follow us on social media for more details and registration information!

Wear jeans to raise awareness about the misconceptions that surround sexual assault! Started after an Italian Supreme Court ruling in which a rape conviction was overturned because the victim had been wearing tight jeans: the justices ruled that she must have helped her rapist remove them, thereby implying consent. For denim day materials visit denimdayinfo.org and follow our social media @AdvocacyTC for info and updates. Use #ACdenimday2021 so we can follow your posts!
Keep an eye out for social media posts and website updates as we plan for our 2021 virtual event! Participants are encouraged to join any way that feels comfortable. Marchers are encouraged to make signs, banners or wear clothes that highlight groups and organizations standing in solidarity with survivors or with messages of protest against domestic and sexual violence.
