You’re almost to the weekend!
Here are 5 things happening in and around Victoria today!
What: The luncheon will host inspiring keynote speakers Tracy Porteous, executive director of Ending Violence BC, and JR LaRose, former BC Lions and Be More Than A Bystander spokesman to talk about ending violence against women, toxic masculinity and male allies. Violence against women affects us all, however it has long been labelled a ‘woman’s issue’. Since the vast majority of perpetrators of relationship and sexual violence against women are males, the problem is equally a ‘men’s issue’. Sports icons are using their status and public profile to raise awareness about social issues, and we are proud to see the BC Lions engage on the issue of violence against women.
Where: The Union Club of British Columbia

When: 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
What: Bring your art, dance, poetry and music in honour & celebration for International Women’s Day. Everyone is welcome! This event is trans women inclusive, and they want it to be a safe space for everyone to participate. They want to be inclusive to women of all backgrounds, and acknowledge that feminism needs to be intersectional.
