Every Woman's Place for Support, Connections and Community.
Wednesday June 6th, 6-8 pm
Join us to learn about the role of the City of Calgary in advancing gender equity. We'll dive into the policy-making process at the city level and learn about what other Canadian cities are doing to advance gender equity. We'll also have the opportunity to apply a gender lens to City services using tangible examples in areas like public transit and recreation.
The discussion will be facilitated by Alison Kent, an Issue Strategist with The City of Calgary. Her work is focused on addressing social policy issues, including those raised in the recent
'gender equity and diversity Notice of Motion' passed by Council.
This workshop will celebrate the Women's Centre Artists in Residence community art project that embodies our shared vision: Women supporting communities, communities supporting women. We will discuss the power of creative expression.
Recieve an update on Basic Income Calgary's Municipal campaign and the Mobilizing Basic Income Alberta project. Show Me, Tell Me, a photovoice project, will be centered around the belief that all Albertans have the right to live a dignified life. Photovoice expresses concerns and issues through the use of photography and personal narratives.
The Women's Centre will be attending the march with our banner and noisemakers to make our support known! We'll meet at the Centre at 10 am and walk over to Banker's Hall to join the rest of the parade for 11. We will celebrate what makes us each unique and how much we all have in common with a day of entertainment, food, and fun until 2 pm

In places like Charlottesville, VA that have abolished cash bail, courts still regularly detain Black women because of an inability to pay bond (usually a percentage of the overall bail paid by a private company in the form of a loan, which sends Black people already living in poverty spiralling into further debt)
