On September 23rd, WISE hosted a fundraiser at Bar Robo to celebrate 25 years of WISE's commitment to women's safety in Ottawa. We had three amazing performances from Tariq Anwar, The Tackies, and Andy and The Brewsters ft. Deborah Clarke. The Charlatan graciously reported on the event and you can read the article where I was interviewed about WISE, here:
"MC Nasreen Rajani, a Carleton doctoral student and WISE board member spoke passionately on behalf of the charity. In a speech outlining one of WISE’s most recent completed projects, Rajani described the work they did in association with OC Transpo Security, City Project Leaders, and construction crews in regards to the new Light Rail Transit pedestrian walkway at St. Laurent station.
“This new walkway, though narrow and curvy, will now be accentuated by extensive lighting, artwork, increased emergency features located along the main points, and accessible signage and features,” she said."
