NORTH YORK WOMEN’S SHELTER

Our recent campaign raised $1,065.00 for the North York Women’s Shelter.  Donations help the NYWS fund a holistic and intersectional feminist approach to anti-violence. 

NYWS isn’t just a shelter. It’s a new kind of anti-violence centre pushing back against gender based violence and is grateful for our contribution to help them ensure women, children, and trans folks, are empowered to move forward into a life free from violence. To find out more click here.
