Want to be a community champion
on the issue of violence against women?

Help continue the momentum to end violence against women by inviting us to facilitate a MANifest Change Workshop at your school or community organization. Designed for young men aged 13-18, together we learn how to recognize violence against women when we see it, and practice how to respond safely.

Want to share your time and expertise to MANifest Change? Are you skilled in workshop facilitation, social media or community organizing? Contact Matt Schaaf at 613 237 1000 or men@octevaw-cocvff.ca
