Tonight I’ll be sharing Rehtaeh’s story with Western University students as part of ‘One Love.’
One Love is an event during Western University’s Orientation Week that focuses on intersectional experiences of community members in order to emphasize the importance of one’s words and actions. The four main focuses of this event will be sexual violence prevention & consent, queer experiences, Indigenous awareness, and mental health, with an overarching theme of “Empathy, Belonging, and Resiliency.”
I spoke at the same event a couple years ago and recall it being quite the experience. Look forward to being there.
