Dear Friends of January,

Sher Vancouver is pleased to welcome the BC Civil Liberties Association as an Official Sponsor of the upcoming documentary film January.

Sher Vancouver is pleased to have the support of a grassroots community organization that has a long standing history of fighting for the human rights, dignity, equality, respect, and freedom of us all.

The BC Civil Liberties Association provides assistance to members of the public who are dealing with civil liberties issues.  Civil liberties issues often focus on the relationship between the government and citizens, although they can also involve private organizations.  Some examples of civil liberties issues that we might be able to assist with include those relating to police accountability, privacy violations, access to information requests, or free speech and freedom of expression.

Special Thanks to Nathanel Lowe who is the Outreach and Communications Coordinator at the BC Civil Liberties Association for facilitating this sponsorship.

SHAKTI: EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN, CHILDREN AND FAMILIES SOCIETY

This is a non-profit society dedicated to empowering individuals, families and communities. Our vision is to inspire, motivate and create vibrant communities by utilizing and enhancing the social capital of our citizens. We are committed to working with underprivileged members of our community and bringing resources together to support those in need.

The Shakti Awards were founded by Sonia Andhi in an effort to recognize the work and efforts of women in our community. Every year, several women are presented with the Shakti award for showing courage, determination and grace in various fields. The Shakti society will support this initiative and raise funds through this event to create a project to raise awareness around women’s issues on an ongoing basis.

One of the goals of Shakti Society is to form a network of agencies that collaborate and support all efforts to create a safe and connected community. Shakti Society with the support of current media outlets will initiate programs that will reach the isolated populations of our community to help them meet their basic rights of food, clothing, shelter and living with dignity.

The purposes of the society are:

  • To create awareness around current issues impacting women, children and families through media and public forums.
  • To collaborate with similar societies and initiatives in Canada to enhance services available to women, children and families

Dear Friends of January,

Sher Vancouver is pleased to announce that the Surrey Philippine Independence Day Society (SPIDS) has come on board to become an Official Supporter of January.

We are very grateful to have the support of the local Filipino community.

January Marie Lapuz and her best friend, Ash Brar, who is the current Moderator of Sher Vancouver, shared many common roots as they were both born in the Philippines and spoke Tagalog and were recent immigrants to British Columbia.

Ash invited January to be the Social Coordinator of Sher Vancouver and January became the first transgender person to hold an Executive position within the organization.

Thank you to SPIDS for your support.  Special thanks to Narima Dela Cruz for facilitating this sponsorship.  It is appreciated.
