ManUp @ManUpLDHSS

Last week I had the honour to attend a ManUp meeting in Ottawa to discuss the role young men play in ending violence against women. Rehtaeh's life mattered to these guys enough that they've taken it upon themselves to do something about her tragic story and do what they can do so it doesn't happen to someone else. When I look back at the past [...]

Letters from Elementary School #RehtaehParsons

There are 60 letters in all and I'm still going through them. It was a very thoughtful thing to do. Below are some samples. I am going to post a note [...]
