Hey Everyone! Help us seek safety, justice, and equality for all women and girls! We are shaving our heads to raise money to help the Surrey Women's Centre 'SMART Van Mobile Crisis Centre' reach women working on the streets of Surrey. Any donation helps!

Who Are We?

We are a team of women who are seeking safety, justice, and equality for all women and girls.

What We're Doing

We are launching a fundraiser affiliated with Surrey Women's Centre. We will be funding part of their Surrey Mobile Assault Response Team Van, also referred to as the S.M.A.R.T. Van, a mobile crisis centre reaching women living and working on the streets of Surrey, British Columbia. The S.M.A.R.T. Van goal is to reduce barriers to accessing vital aid and to provide resources, support, and options. The S.M.A.R.T. Van will be a big part in helping women who need medical treatment after a sexual assault. The stigma of sex work makes women 'easy targets' for assault and can make it hard to ask for help.

"We think it’s SMART to help women. All women deserve to feel safe. With your help we can prevent women from falling through the cracks."

 

Liz and Michelle will be shaving their heads on December 9th in support of this campaign. 

It Works!

"An evaluation of Vancouver’s “MAP” van operated by the WISH Drop-in centre speaks to its value. Sex workers report that the van makes them feel safer on the streets. They are also more likely to connect with other critical resources including the hospital, police, detox, addiction treatment centres and other supports for getting off the streets."

S.M.A.R.T Van is not just a van, it's a lifeline for women on the street.
