CALACS has activities for prevention week
CALACS (the Centre d’aide et de lute contre les agressions a caractere sexuel), the local organization that has been helping victims of sexual violence for 35 years, is inviting people to take part in the activities organized for the sexual violence prevention week which runs from September 12th to the 16th. The activities aim to make people more aware about the issues related to the problem. A fundraising evening took place last night; a free viewing of the film Intrusion will take place at the Centre Culturel of the Université de Sherbrooke at 6:00 pm this evening; and on Friday, at 5:30 pm at the Marché de la Gare in Sherbrooke, there will be a march to take action against sexual violence against women. After the march there will be free European hotdogs for the first 80 participants, and many kiosks of local organizations to visit.
