Although it is a couple of weeks after One Billion Rising, it is still important to give our appreciation to those who battled the cold weather for a good cause! Without community support, events such as this could not take place. It is incredible to know there are so many people in our community who will support and advocate for those who feel like they have no voice or who feel they are unable to stand up for themselves. This is especially evident in our refugee and immigrant community. We must stand united as a community to show women and men we are here for support and will not tolerate abuse!
