CFUW Orillia Reaches Out

CFUW Orillia has started a membership recruitment campaign, targeting women in their community who belong to various clubs or activities that can’t meet because of COVID.

CFUW Orangeville Virtual Women’s Campaign School

Through a grant to the Town of Orangeville (funded by WAGE Canada in partnership with FCM), CFUW Orangeville & District successfully completed one of 20 Towards Parity Demonstration Projects in October 2020. Despite pandemic-imposed cancellation of in-person Inspiring Women and Women’s Campaign School events earlier this year, the project ended strong with an Equal Voice-facilitated pop-up virtual Campaign School event to celebrate Persons Day 2020 on Oct 18. Two lucky participants have been sponsored to attend Equal Voice’s National Online Campaign School from Nov 3-27, 2020. Why not join them?!
