Girl Talk: Women at the Heart of Peace Workshop (posted Dec 10th/2017)

On Monday November 20th I had the pleasure of going to a conference with Girl Talk. We went to the "Women at the Heart of Peace" workshop at St. Bonaventure Parish. It was very interesting to learn about the many of the statistics that were presented to us at the conference.  We were able to learn about the campaign which included a petition that would be sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The petition asked that he follow through with the promise that 0.7% of the Canadian economy would go towards women empowered initiatives , something that he had yet to act upon. We were given petitions to distribute in school, so students could also take part and sign the petition. We were invited back in April of next year to go to Nathan Phillips square to rally for this cause. I had a lot of fun at the conference and learned many interesting things along the way. The conference is something that I hope Girl Talk will attend again!
