January is the most emotionally affecting month of the year. In between dark days, a holiday season behind us, and the return to work, January can seem like a bleak time in the cold winter.

So let’s celebrate!

Hate Free Yeg has had an incredible 2018, and going into 2019, we want to thank the incredible community that’s lifted us up, and worked hard to make Edmonton a safer, more inclusive space. To that end, we’re having a pep rally in Churchill Square! This family friendly event will have poetry, speeches, activities for kids, and coffee & snacks.

Let’s get together and celebrate our community by lifting each other up, and warming each other through love, community, and solidarity. We could all use a little morale boost, couldn’t we?

Our speakers have been updated! They include:
Freda Ballantyne, an activist who's done an extraordinary amount of organizing and advocacy for the rights of indigenous peoples on Treaty 6 land and the nation at large

Niuboi, a performer, actor, and performance artist in Edmonton who will be doing a number of lovely family friendly activities!

Lindsey Jorgensen-Skakum, who's active within the Lutheran church, and has done extraordinary work to make Edmonton a safer, warmer, and more inclusive space for all.

PLEASE BRING BOXES OF MENSTRUAL PADS. We’re taking in pads, and we’ll be donating them to Boyle Street Community Services. Pads specifically are an item that aren’t donated enough, they are culturally sensitive and always in short supply.
