    Violence Against Women

    Wrapped in CourageNovember is Woman Abuse Prevention Month. The purple scarf is a symbol of the courage it takes a woman to leave her abuser. However, the courage of a woman is not enough. It takes the support of an entire community to end violence against women.

    This year, the Wrapped in Courage campaign is not selling purple scarves; we are shifting our donation ask to the convenience of your mobile phone. All you need to do is text the word 'COURAGE' to 41010 to donate $5-$25. Every dollar raised will be evenly distributed to participating women’s shelters across the province. Please visit wrappedincourage.ca to learn more.

    Launched in June 2019, the Aging Without Violence Project's Invisibility Campaign calls awareness to the invisibility of older women experiencing violence. Service provider posters seek to connect professionals with the oaith.ca training portal, while the general public posters provide a bridge to the Senior Safety Line for older women who may be experiencing violence and their friends and family.
