Speak out
- Soapbox Sessions  

Can you make a policy recommendation about an issue impacting your life? Or have you done research on a local women's issue? We still have a few Soapbox presenter spots open at Make One Change. Each presenter will have a total of eight minutes to speak out about an issue and make at least one recommendation for change.


Girl Power Summer Camps
Registration now open!
Do you know a girl who would like to go to summer camp? We are offering free day camps for girls (ages 10-12) during the weeks of July 15-19, July 22-26 and August 19-23. Girls are invited to attend one week of camp.

Girl Power provides opportunities for girls to share their stories, build community and make new friends. Girls will participate in activities like dance, art, self-defense, and theatre. Mentors will lead discussions around topics like body image, gender roles, self-esteem, healthy relationships and activism in a safe, supportive, girls-only environment. Read more...

Comings & Goings
This month we say goodbye to our practicum student, Mirella Estupe-Bautista. Thank you for all of your hard work and best of luck with your future aspirations!
Thank You
Last month, Women's Centre runners and walkers helped us exceed our goal of raising $10,000 for our Basic Needs program through the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Charity Challenge.

Thank you to everyone who raced on behalf of Women's Centre or sponsored our team. Because of your support, we will be able to provide more women with access to the basic needs they require.
