Each year, a group of volunteers get together to organize an annual Comox Valley International Women’s Day Festival. The event takes place on March 8, the global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality, and is a fundraiser for Comox Valley Transition Society.
Peace begins at home…it’s an idea that many of us hold dear. But for many women, children, elders and families in our communitt, this is not the case. For too many, home is not a place of safety, security and sanctuary; instead, it is a place where family members or intimate partners use violence and coercion to maintain power and control. For two weeks in April, CVTS works to educate the community about the continued issue of domestic violence, encouraging people to wear purple ribbons and do their part to help end family violence.

To date, this event has raised more than $50,000 to support women and their children in the Comox Valley who are fleeing abuse.
