Women's Centre Events 

Tuesday Oct 25, 1-4pm
Join us for a workshop to explore climate change and the environment; specifically how it affects women and people living in poverty. 
Alberta Ecotrust Foundation, the Pembina Institute, and the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (CCVO) will be sharing their knowledge and experience.  This event is open to all genders. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Wednesday Nov 2, 6-8pm
In this workshop, we will discuss the effects of colonization on Aboriginal women today, including PTSD and its symptoms. Join us for a conversation about how complex trauma inflicted on Aboriginal communities is continued, and learn about intervention strategies including the use of self care.
The Women's Centre is piloting a child minding service for this workshop. Volunteers will be available to care for children over 19 months. If you're interested in bringing a child with you, please call 403-264-1155 to RSVP.

Community Events 

Tuesday Oct 25, 12-1:30pm. Kahanoff Conference Centre
Join Vibrant Communities Calgary for our final Community Conversation of 2016.
In Calgary, we LOVE our libraries, but this one is a little different.  Instead of paper books (or e-books, if you prefer!) we will have living books.  Real people, all contributors to Enough for All, Calgary's poverty reduction strategy, who can answer your questions about all sorts of things ranging from social and policy change, Indigenous ways of knowing, community economic development, experiences of living in poverty, the justice system, and more!

Our Vision: Women Supporting Communities, Communities Supporting Women.
