May is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This is the time of year when Sexual Assault Centre London invites our community to join us in raising awareness about the serious issues of sexual violence against women and children. This year, we have a number of events:
- May 1st is our Kick Off for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In partnership with LOCO Roller Derby, we are presenting “Wipe Out”. Wipe Out will feature a self defense class for women and girls at 4:30 pm, and a Roller Derby Bout at 7 pm at the North London Optimist Community Centre.
- May 6th is Wear Purple Day. By joining us and wearing purple on May 6th, you can help us draw attention to the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region’s social media campaign “No One Asks For It”.
- May 7th, shop at Chapters London on Wellington Road South from 1pm to 4pm. Bring your friends and family to an afternoon of shopping while supporting Sexual Assault Centre London. Chapters will donate 15% of your purchases back to the Centre.
- May 27th is our Centre’s premier Gala event. Join us at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn for live and silent auctions, an elegant buffet dinner, great entertainment with singer songwriter Samantha Hooey and Orlando Valencia, London’s premier salsa band. Tickets are only $55.00 per person.
