The outreach team and volunteers had a busy and productive two days tabling at Big on Bloor the weekend of July 19th and 20th.
We spoke to community members at the event about the work that The Redwood does, including our amazing Women on the Move program. People were excited to learn about this powerful program and many expressed interest in our program materials (the Program Manual and the Documentary Discussion Guide) to use in their communities and in the work that they do with them.
We loved the opportunity to share what we do with the community at Big on Bloor and we’re looking forward to next year!

Throughout the summer the Women on the Move team will be attending a number of summer festivals as a way of raising awareness about gender-based violence. We will be attending two community festivals.
For the second year in a row WOTM members will be attending the Big on Bloor Festival on July 19th & 20th, 2014. This event is designed to connect community members with local businesses and community services in Bloordale. Members of the WOTM team will be sharing their experience of being in the program and giving out information about The Redwood’s shelter services.
On August 23rd we will be attending the third annual Scarborough Afro-Caribbean Festival. This is our second year attending this event. Amongst the Caribbean and African performances, poetry, dancing and food we found that there is a real need for people to know about gender based violence, shelter services and leadership programs like Women on the Move. We look forward to attending these festivals and we hope to see you at our information table.
If you’d like to know more about the Women on the Move program but can’t attend either festival please join us at our upcoming WOTM Webinar in Fall 2014. Feel free to contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, receive program updates by following us on Twitter @WOTM_RW.
