UBCP/ACTRA Women’s Support Gathering
UBCP/ACTRA is holding a SUPPORT GATHERING FOR WOMEN IN FILM AND TELEVISION on Tuesday, February 6th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the UBCP/ACTRA Offices.
The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have made public the pervasive sexual harassment and abuse of women in the film and television industry. UBCP/ACTRA welcomes its members, and is opening their doors to sisters in IATSE, DGC, WGC, and Teamsters.
The support session will be facilitated by a counselor from the Battered Women Support Services (BWSS). This is a woman’s organization in Metro Vancouver committed to supporting and advocating for women who have experienced gendered based violence.
While brothers are not exempt from this abuse of power - this specific support session is offered to women members (and those who identify as female) who want a safe place to express their fear, anger, and sorrow.
