#CreateChange Give Now

banner-v1-1

Kia ora Whānau,

We believe in creating safe spaces for friends, family and survivors. We don’t want this to change over the Christmas period. Please support us to support those who need it most.

This time is often stressful for many, and the prevalence of alcohol can often lead to unsafe situations. We want everyone to remain safe throughout this time – and this campaign serves to remind friends and family of ways they can support survivors by creating safer spaces for them.

You can donate on our campaign page here or check out our donate now page for other ways to give. Your support means the world to us and survivors, their families and others who support them in times of crisis. Thank you.

P.s. you can also help by printing out our posters and putting them up at your workplace, community centre, local cafe to help us spread the word of hope and change for survivors.

We are holding a fundraising gig on Thursday, the 19th May at Meow.

Come and have a boogie, a beverage and support a great cause! Proceeds go toward keeping our services running, so we can continue to support survivors & their whānau.

Consent Craftivism – Sunday 6th March 12.30-2.30

T Wellington Rape Crisis and Wellington High School Feminists are hosting a Pride event as part of Tū whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Tara Wellington Pride week .

Come up to the WRC drop in (203-209 Willis Street) and hear a little bit about what we do, meet the high school feminist leaders and learn about this movement in Welly. We are also going to be working on pieces for a street art based campaign to raise awareness of drink spiking and the use of alcohol in facilitating sexual violence which is still something we see pretty regularly in Wellington. No crafty skills necessary, suitable for all ages.

Bookings not necessary, just turn up and we’ll let you in.

Check our the facebook event here or the Pride website here

 

Hope to see you there!
