This event, hosted by the Purple Sisters, is funded by a Dare to Dream Grant through the Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health, and will be held at the Youth Services Bureau Downtown Drop-In.
ABOUT THE PURPLE SISTERS
Purple Sisters Youth Advisory Committee works to empower young women from all backgrounds, regardless of class, race, age, sexual and gender identity, religion and physical and mental ability. We believe that women have the right to make their own choices that affect themselves, their lives, and their bodies. We strive to challenge gender roles, create safe spaces, and value diversity. We achieve these goals through event planning, engaging with the Women's Space drop-in program, offering workshops in the community, and our strong presence on social media.
ABOUT THE EVENT
We invite all young women & women-aligned folks (24 & under) to a free by youth, for youth event to discuss how their various intersecting identities relate to their mental well being. Most panels will be open to all young women, or those who identify with women's issues, but throughout the day, there will also be space for young men to discuss & learn about their role in relation to women's well being.Trans and non binary youth are welcome to join whichever workshops they identity with and feel comfortable in. Our focus is on young women's mental health, but we hope to be inclusive of other genders and will not be policing folks' identities.
