About Courage to Act
Courage to Act is a two-year national initiative to address and prevent gender-based violence on post-secondary campuses in Canada. It builds on Possibility Seeds’ vital report, Courage to Act: Developing a National Framework to Address and Prevent Gender-Based Violence. The project is funded through the Department for Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) and is part of the Federal Government 2018 Budget commitment of $5.5 million over five years to address and prevent gender-based violence at post-secondary institutions in Canada.
