Please join us for the 1st annual Breakfast with the Guys* - Foothills!
Enjoy a networking breakfast, followed by a presentation by former Calgary Stampeder, Keon Raymond. Raymond will share his personal story of experiencing family violence and what it means to be a part of the Alberta Council of Women's Shelters Leading Change project.
Then you'll be out the door and on your way back to work by 9am!
When women reach out to us for help, it tends to be after the abuse has taken place. We work hard to support them in their journey to healing and continue to change the lives of many women and children. However, we strongly believe that prevention and education are what will create the cultural shift to ultimately end domestic violence.
Violence and abuse are not issues that should stay behind closed doors - they are the responsibility of the whole community.
So Rowan House is calling on the good guys to be leaders for change.
If you are a leader in the community, Breakfast with the Guys is an opportunity for you to take small steps that will have a big impact. Together we can create a safer future for those who live with violence every day. These are women you know, in your workplace, on your daughter’s soccer team, around you when you are out with friends and those in the causes you support.
*Please note, this event is not limited to men. All are welcome!
