At the Make One Change women’s gathering we spoke about momentum and mobilization. And as we have seen after the recent floods in our region, folks in Calgary clearly know how to mobilize for action and work together as a community.
A diversity of local issues impacting women in our region were discussed at Make One Change. During the Knowledge Café, presenters and individuals were asked to come up with concrete strategies and next steps to address some of the issues and make change for women.
