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.
