Friday, September 20th was a busy day for CASE! We spent the day at our Clubs Week booth and were so excited to see the positive responses and students who became members. Later in the evening we held our first event, a potluck-picnic at Shaw Millennium Park before Take Back the Night! We're so thankful for the members who came out, old and new. Each person's presence matters when it comes to showing solidarity at public rallies, so we are very proud that CASE members did their part to create such an amazing turnout for Take Back the Night.

Our club president Ellen Bolger had the opportunity to talk with David Gray on the CBC Calgary Eyeopener this morning about CASE and our mission to provide consent education to students in Calgary, both secondary and post-secondary. We are thankful the CBC gave us the opportunity to go into detail about our goals and why we believe our work is so important. Check out the interview here.
We made a video for the Banff YWCA's 3 Minute Video Contest. We had a lot of fun making it and would like to thank everyone involved for their time and effort!
CASE President Ellen Bolger and VP External Emily Leedham attended the 3rd Annual Edmonton Slutwalk on July 26, 2013 in protest of victim blaming and sexual assault. Over 150 people attended the event. Here's a sweet video about Slutwalk from CTV.
