This year, during the holiday season, PSAC's North East Regional Women’s Committee created care kits for women and their families in two cities: Prince George and Prince Rupert. They gathered critical items for local organizations that will certainly be put to good use. While organizing and distributing the kits looked a bit different this year, the hardwork and dedication of these women and their supporters remain steadfast! Thank you to everyone who participated!

The statistics are shocking: gender-based violence is on the rise, including in the world of work.  It’s something a lot of people are silent about, but we need to talk.  November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is the start of 16 Days of Activism on Gender-Based Violence.
