April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
So we’ve teamed up with The Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence to bring you this afternoon of activism and altruism.
We’re chatting all things “consent” with a workshop round-table led by the babes of ACESDV
41% of women and 20% of men in AZ will experience sexual violence. And yet, Arizona happens to be one of the few states in the nation without any sexual violence funding. Like zero. Literally not a single dollar. And we think that’s bullshit, so we’re popping off to our electeds.
In addition to collecting donations, we will also craft and write notes of thank you for the volunteers of ACESDV, showing them some love and gratitude for all of the amazing work they do for our community.
*Your dues for this event include: Babe Council Merit Button, education materials, letter writing & activity supplies.
The Arizona Coalition Against Domestic Violence was formed in 1980 so that concerned citizens and professionals could unite in a statewide organization to end domestic violence. In 2013, the coalition became the designated dual coalition to address both sexual and domestic violence thus becoming the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence.
Babe Council Meeting FAQ:
Who is Babe Council for?
Some people call it "being a good citizen. We prefer "Babe".
Whether you're a republican, democrat, independent, or queen, we believe all women benefit from knowing about and how to address the issues facing their community. So, we created BC for any femme-identifying individual who's wanted to do more but wasn't sure how, or who might be short on time, money, energy or all-of-the-above, and because of that has never had a way to do good stuff for others, become more civically engaged, be more informed, involved, etc. We're also a dope girl gang who love cocktails and couldn't care more... so if you're into that kind of thing, we're for you too
Can I come alone? Is that weird?
Shy? Awkward? Introvert? Don't be scared, everyone will love you! We are committed to making sure that every babe has a seat at the table. Plus, we get it. Doing anything for the first time can be a little scary/weird... that's why we have cocktails!
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
We'd love to hear from you, babe! Shoot us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
