EDMONTON'S GENDER-BASEDVIOLENCE & SEXUAL ASSAULT PREVENTION INITIATIVE
“We can no longer stand by while Edmontonians of all ages, genders and ethnicities are subject to gender-based violence. It’s time to stand up.” Councillor Bev Esslinger
“It’s time for men and boys to be excellent role models, and to speak out against gender-based violence and sexual assault. We must be better.” Councillor Scott McKeen
It's Time Edmonton
It’s Time is Edmonton’s Gender-Based Violence & Sexual Assault Prevention Council Initiative launched in 2015. Gender-based violence – whether it be street harassment, domestic violence, emotional abuse or sexual assault – affects so many Edmontonians of all genders. It’s Time Edmonton, as the face of Edmonton’s Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Council Initiative, is about bringing conversations about these difficult topics out of the shadows. Everyone is impacted, everyone has a story. It’s Time Edmonton is committed to a bold public conversation about the many forms of gender-based violence. Our initiative is called It’s Time because it’s time we start telling a new story.
