Women’s Committee

International Women's Day Event

This year to celebrate International Women’s Day we hosted a webinar. Women’s Activist and Author Julie S. Lalonde spoke about the futility of resilience, and why we need to question our focus on it.

Our Women’s Committee is one of the most active committees in our Local.

They host annual events like our International Women’s Day Luncheon, participate in Take Back the Night as well as support a BackPack Drive just to name a few things.  Our Women’s Commitee event often serve to raise donations for SACHA(Sexual Assault Centre Hamilton) and support the United Way’s Period Promise Campaign.
