All Welcome

All folks are welcome to join us for our 13th annual community breakfast!  It’s a lovely opportunity to celebrate our work together as we seek to make our corner of the world safer for all.

Each year many generous souls take care of ticket costs for high students & their teachers to join the breakfast.  Please call Liz Brown at 519.633.0155 to let us know how many students you would like to sponsor.

Keynote Speaker – Farrah Khan

Farrah Khan picked up a microphone to speak out about sexual assault as a teenager and she has not put it down since.  As a nationally recognized counsellor, educator, and policy advisor she has spent two decades working diligently to raise awareness of the connection between equity and gender based violence.  She is the Manager of the Consent Comes First Office at Ryerson University.  Due to Farrah’s knowledge and collaborative approach to addressing the systemic, community, and personal barriers that survivors of sexual violence face, she was named the co-chair of Ontario’s first permanent provincial roundtable on Violence Against Women in 2015.  In 2016, she was appointed to the Government of Canada’s Federal Strategy Against Gender-Based Violence Advisory Council.  Farrah conducts training across North America & is also a regular contributor to major news media including CBC’s The National and the Globe & Mail.  Farrah holds a Masters Degree of Social Work from University of Toronto.
