Join us September 13 as we welcome Debra Tomlinson, CEO of the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services, who will speak to us about the power of the words, “I Believe You,” and the award winning media campaign of the same name. Deb and her colleagues do amazing and powerful work to combat the silence around sexual assault. It’s an important topic, and we are excited to join the conversation during the 2017 campaign launch week. Thank you to the Consignment Gallery for hosting this event.
