For those of you who live in the Montreal area, SACOMSS will be holding three events in the near future:
The first is a baked-goods giveaway on Friday, November 30th. Volunteers will be giving away sweet treats at the Y-intersection in the middle of McGill’s main campus. More information can be found on the Facebook page.
We’re also holding a condom design competition! We want your artwork, witty slogans, and talent to come together in a design that supports safe sex and sexual assault awareness. These are designs for the Sexual Assault Centre so your design must allow space for: our name (SACOMSS) and our number (514-398-8500). We will be taking the top 3 designs to be voted upon as a centre. The winner will receive a prize of free condoms of your very own creation! Deadline for submissions is December 15.
If you have any questions or want a template for your design, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, SACOMSS is hosting a memorial for the December 6th shooting at L’École Polytechnique of Montreal.
On December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine entered L’École Polytechnique of Montreal with the intention to “fight feminism” by killing women engineers. Each year, this day is remembered as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. SACOMSS is hosting a memorial service to remember the lives that were lost and to remember that we deal with violence and oppression every day and it is our responsibility to stand up and take action.The event will be December 6, 2012 from 6:30-8:00 @ Birks Chapel (3520 University, Montreal), followed by a reception with coffee, tea and snacks. The Birks Building is wheelchair accessible.
There will be speakers and performances, as well as candle lighting and a moment of silence to remember those whose lives have been lost. Volunteers trained in active listening will be present throughout.
