Out & About
Celebrate National Women’s Day at the 2nd Annual XX Factor: Women on the Wheels of Steel dance party, presented by Mama Cutsworth and her crew of D.J. School Graduates. All funds raised will support the Drop-In program at the West Central Women’s Resource Centre, where last year over 20,000 women walked through the centre’s doors, accessing various programs and services. The dance party takes place on Friday, March 8 at the Regal Beagle (331 Smith St.) Doors open at 8:00pm. Tickets are $10.00 and are available at the WCWRC, Mondragon, Music Trader, and the University of Winnipeg Information Booth. The Drop-In is an integral part of WCWRC programming. Of the multiple barriers faced by women in the West Central community, social isolation is one of the most pressing. In addition to providing a sense of community and belonging, this program connects women with valuable resources. Through the Drop-In program, women have access to a computer, library, telephone and clothing depot. Food, beverages and a comfortable seating area are provided. Women can also access free laundry and shower services and get some basic hygiene supplies.
