Nov. 25-Dec. 10, we are participating in 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. To kick off this campaign, we are collaborating with the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC), The University of Waterloo and Conestoga College in a new initiative, #Purple4Prevention.

#Purple4Prevention invites our community to purchase and wear a custom-made t-shirt on Nov. 25, 2021 to show support at the beginning of the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. T-shirts are only $10, and $3 of your purchase goes directly to SASC to support their incredibly important work in our community. 

How to get your t-shirt:

- Order your t-shirt through iPrint’s website by Nov 17th.

-Pick up your t-shirt ahead of time at iPrint’s store (25 Weber St N, Waterloo), get it shipped directly to you or pick it up on the Waterloo or Brantford campus on Tuesday, November 23 (locations below).

Let’s work together to send the message that on our campuses and in our communities, we stand in solidarity with survivors of gender-based violence! By purchasing a t-shirt, we can create opportunities for discussion and awareness that we all have a role to play in ending gender-based violence while simultaneously supporting an important community organization.

Wear your t-shirt November 25th, and throughout the remainder of 16 Days!

Remember to share a selfie and hashtag #Purple4Prevention – alone or with your team!
