: Pledge Mirror - Eating Disorder and Body Image Awareness Week

Women's Resource Centre at University of Calgary
The EDBIAW team will be setting up a mirror in the Women’s Resource Centre during Body Image Awareness Week for visitors to stick notes pertaining to body positivity and self-acceptance on. Pledges can be anything from personal goals about becoming comfortable in your own skin, or something more general, like “I will not stand for fat shaming”. The goal is to write notes for people to find inspiring, encouraging, and supportive of all body types.

: YYC Colours - documentary about Racism in Calgary premiere, April 9

Globe Cinema
Racism is the belief that characteristics and abilities can be attributed to people simply on the basis of their race and that some racial groups are superior to others. Racist behaviour can be not just overt, such as treating some people according to their race or colour, but also covert, where society systematically treats groups according to some form of discriminating judgement.
