We are grateful to the more than 700 friends, supporters, sponsors, and allies who helped us celebrate International Women’s Day at our annual Equality Breakfast. Thanks to your incredible response, we raised much-needed funds to advance equality and justice for those in BC who are marginalized because of their gender.
You can now relive the magic—or see what you missed—by viewing the photo gallery featuring more about 200 beautiful shots by Johnny Liu (Johnny Liu Photography) and Valerie Gabrielle (Valerie Gabrielle Photography).
