Take Back the YouTube: Short Film Fest to Challenge Violence
Join us as we celebrate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence with a thought-provoking digital YouTube film festival. We’ll watch stunning short films about the issues and participate in thought-provoking discussions on what it takes to prevent and end gender-based violence in our homes, workplaces, and communities.
Entry fee: donate what you can. It will go toward the efforts of the Canadian Women’s Foundation ($20 suggested donation).
Date: Thursday, December 10, 4:00-5:00 PM EST
The Canadian Women’s Foundation (canadianwomen.org) is Canada’s public foundation for gender equality. Help move women, girls, and gender-diverse people to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership by making a donation in support of my digital fundraiser. Thank you for your support!
The 16 Days of Activism is a global campaign that takes place every year between November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and December 10, International Human Rights Day. It also includes December 6, Canada’s Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, which marks the 1989 Montreal Massacre.
Gender-based violence was at a high rate before the pandemic, especially for marginalized women and gender-diverse people. In 2020, there are red flags that it is on the rise, and that those who are victimized are having a harder time reaching out for help.
Even though we can’t be together in person, we can still act together to make a difference.
