A BENEFIT CONCERT FOR WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN
VOICES for HOPE
"Because while the line of accountability for the disaster in Afghanistan leads directly to the Taliban, that line sits within a wider web of complicity that includes the Americans and all their allies, Canada included. Promises were made to Afghans: speak freely, send your girls to school, elect your government. Now the people who took us up on those promises fear for their lives. They sit and wait for the unlikely news of a way out. Let us hope they receive that news, before other news — the knock on the door they all dread."
-- LAURYN OATES, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CANADIAN WOMEN FOR WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN, AUGUST 28TH, 2021

URGENT HELP IS NEEDED NOW
MORE THAN EVER.
WE THANK THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES FOR THEIR KIND SUPPORT
Reaching out to our communities -- and getting the level of response we have -- is nothing less than inspiring. Thanks to these generous sponsors, who have given their support through financial contribution, the Voices for Hope concert and campaign can donate 100% of proceeds to Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. Thank you.
Based on our current and incomplete understanding, Voices for Hope respectfully acknowledges that we carry out our work on unceded Coast Salish homelands, including the lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We recognize our responsibilities to honour Indigenous peoples and lands, challenge colonial injustice, and uphold Indigenous rights. This acknowledgement represents only a small step in that work.
If you are interested in exploring the history of this land from an Indigenous perspective, check out Indigenous Canada, a free 12-module course offered by the University of Alberta.
