Workshops and Social Action

Determined to eliminate sexual violence from our communities, Amelia Rising regularly engages in social action.  Some events include awareness-raising “Take Back the Night,” anti victim-blaming “No One Asks For It” and ongoing, provocative public education events.  We readily welcome anyone from the community to join in our efforts.



On February 28th, 2014, Amelia Rising celebrated International Women’s Day with EVE-olution; a showcase of local women’s talent. This important event is both an empowering experience for women, and a celebration of the strength of womanhood!

Take Back the Night!

Take Back the Night

November 7th, 2013 brought Take Back the Night, our annual partnership with the Nipissing University Women’s Centre. Over 50 people joined this powerful protest aimed to raise awareness of ongoing safety issues that compromise the freedom of women and children.

No One Asks For It!
