On Friday November 16th, Bowling Teams from various local businesses throughout the community filled Grandview Lanes Glow Bowling for a night of bowling challenges, costume competitions and fundraising cheer for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter. Creativity and enthusiasm were the biggest themes of the night as bowlers came dressed up in fluorescent wigs, fake beards, real beards, and cereal boxes.
On May 29, 2012 members from Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter joined pro choice activists at the Vancouver Art Gallery. We gathered in response to the anti-abortion campaign sought to repeal Canada's abortion laws.
There were about a third or fourth more bodies in support of pro-choice of women's reproductive health/choice than the anti-abortion/anti-choice group. We also had a sign that said "honk if you're pro-choice!" and we got tons of supporters.
A massive thank you to all the people who walked the walk for Rape Relief!
To all of the donors and the volunteers whose contributions made the Walk for Rape Relief 2012 an outstanding demonstration of community support in ending male violence against women.
