International Women's Day Luncheon - Presenting Attiya Khan

Attiya Khan (Writer, Co-Director) is a Toronto-based feminist, intimate partner violence survivor, and long-time advocate and counselor for abused women and children. Attiya conceived the idea for A Better Man in 2012, drawing on her personal and professional experience with intimate partner violence.

Illuminating a unique paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. It also empowers audience members to play new roles in challenging domestic violence, whether it’s in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change.

Attiya will share her story at our International Women’s Day Luncheon on:

Thursday March 8th at the Burlington Holiday Inn at 11am.

Tickets are $20 each (students $10)  and can be purchased here by emailing cbozzo@haltonwomensplace.com

 

 

Location: Burlington Holiday Inn, Burlington Canada

Commemorating 40 Years - Our Ruby Campaign

In 2018, as we embark on 40 years we are inviting our community of Halton to be a part of our Ruby Campaign – a campaign to signify the future of ending violence against women. The future is with our children.

Our Public Education & Advocacy Program is in high demand in classes across the Region. Our educators present to students from Grades 1-12 on a variety of topics including healthy relationships, gender stereotypes, consent, dating violence and the law and so much more. We know that the key to ending violence against women is educating our children. We need to make sure that kids living in abusive homes know that they have options…that they don’t have to repeat the cycle of violence. We also need to educate children about what a healthy relationship is to prevent unhealthy, abusive relationships to start.

However, this program is not government funded. It’s a program that relies on community support.

Your Support.

We hope that we can count on your support as a Ruby Donor in 2018. For example, $500 would help reach 30 children. These children can change the statistics on the future of woman abuse.  How many could you help us reach?

For more information on how to become a Ruby Donor and what our recognition opportunities are for each level, please call Carm Bozzo, Development Manager at 905-332-1200 ext. 222 or email her at cbozzo@haltonwomensplace.com
