Wrapped in Courage 2023: Purple Scarf Campaign & Flag Raising

November marks both Woman Abuse Prevention Month and the 11th Anniversary of Ontario’s Wrapped in Courage Campaign. Gender-based violence agencies across Ontario are coming together to call all community members to wear a purple scarf to show their commitment to ending femicide and all forms of gender-based violence.

Join us on November 6th at 10:30AM at the Orillia City Centre as we take action to end gender-based violence and show our support for survivors across Orillia and the surrounding area. During this event, we will be raising a Wrapped in Courage flag and declaring November 25th the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women in Orillia.

It will be a 30-minute ceremony joined by Green Haven Shelter for Women and the Orillia Native Women’s Group, with a proclamation declared. This Proclamation and flag raising signals a commitment to ending gender-based violence in our community and to ensure survivors know they are not alone.

Join us on November 6th and raise your voice to call for an end to these preventable tragedies which devastate communities and families.

This is a FREE event and registration is not required. However, we do invite you to purchase a purple scarf in honour of survivors of violence and the lives lost to femicide.
