MLA Town Hall: Sexual Violence on BC Campuses

On Wednesday, May 4th 2016 we will be hosting an MLA Town Hall on sexualized violence on BC campuses with a panel of frontline speakers and experts. The event will start with a talk from MLA Andrew Weaver about his legislative efforts to address this issue, as well as an update on the progress of his bill, the Post-Secondary Sexual Violence Policies Act. Following Dr. Weaver, each panelist will speak about their connection to the issue as well as their ongoing efforts to prevent and address instances of sexual assault.

Panelist will include:

  • The Victoria Sexual Assault Centre
  • The UVic Student Society
  • Trauma Therapist Barbara Allyn
  • TRU Student Jean Strong

Plenty of time will be reserved for questions, comments, and discussion about how we can tackle this incredibly important issue and what the legislation will mean for BC post-secondary schools and students. This is a topic that effects everyone in our community, and everyone is welcome to attend.

The event will take place from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the University of Victoria, Student Union Building (3800 Finnerty Road), in the Vertigo Room. Doors will open at 6:30pm and seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please feel free to circulate this invitation to other people or groups who may also have an interest in joining us. And for more information, don’t hesitate to contact our office by email: andrew.weaver.mla@leg.bc.ca by phone: 250 – 472 – 8528 or on facebook.

    Resonate and absolutely agree it is imperative, and even critical,
    to remove the present Leadership in BC., and replace it with the
    Green Party. Ms Clark is totally committed to the oligarchy.
    She has given every indication she is not only disinterested,
    but totally incapable of conducting herself otherwise. This is
    very ” fearsome”. Please execute the powers invested in you
    to attend to the Greatest Good. .Would put every effort into
    supporting this action immediately.
    Sincerely and trustingly

    Mr Weaver the town hall folks will have lots of good ideas Iam sure.
    Reminding them right at the beginning that removing BC Liberals from office asap is the first step
    .Intelligent ideas are a fruitless discussion with
    them in power try your best to get that across
    Is my advice .GOOD Luck God Bless Gord O’kell
