November 8, 2019

Last night we came together to celebrate frontline sectoring working across the City to end violence against women. The Soul of a Warrior Awards recognizes front-line staff for their hard work and commitment to improving the lives of women and children experiencing violence.

We are excited to announce the 2019 winners:

The anti-violence sector works tirelessly to advocate for the rights and safety of those impacted by violence. It is important that we take time to pause, reflect and celebrate. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the evening of celebration and dancing.
