TORONTO WOMEN’S BLUES NIGHT

A fundraising event for Camp Sis - Camp Sisters in Struggle

At The

Toronto Women's Bookstore

 

Camp Sis is now 17 years old. It remains community owned and open to all women. The past few summers CAMP SIS has been used as a get away healing space for six nations and aboriginal women and we would to make this accessible throughout the year. This is a shout out to all who would be sisters in struggle, to make this happen.

There is a need to buy insulation, vapor barrier wood for the walls so the two buildings can be winterized and have caretaker, Doreen Silversmith, stay there. We are in need of women power, labour, and donations in order to build this summer. Please come out to support and celebrate International Women’s Month with us!

INFO ON CAMP SIS 

CAMP SISTERS IN STRUGGLE

Toronto Women Of Colour Collective

 

CAMP SIS is on 75 acres just two hours north of Toronto. It is a very spiritual ground with plenty of sunshine, lovely rolling meadows, old growth forest with a natural spring, beaver pond, and an organic garden. The Camp was bought in 1994 and built by Women of Colour and their women allies. MWIC is a place for healing, education, and the arts. The land was bought by the labour of countless women who fundraised in the Toronto community. Non-profit fundraising has always been and remains our only source of income to pay taxes etc. The staff is made up of volunteers. It is non-profit community owned and we have built two large barn style pine buildings on the land (each building is approximately 40 x 30).

 

The land is organized and facilitated by the Toronto Women Of Colour Collective

Doreen Silversmith, Pamela Dogra, Patricia Allard, Lorelei King, Karen Kalle, and Faith Nolan. It is open to all women who abide by the collective mandate of justice and equality for all. Please make check payable to Multicultural Women in Concert. At present we are in process of getting back our charitable tax number.

The past few summers CAMP SIS has been used as a get away healing space for six nations and aboriginal women. The group would like to be able to use the CAMP all year, so this is a shout out to who would be sisters in struggle, to make this happen.

 

We are looking for fairy godmothers / humanitarians who can donate - labour -supplies or monies to buy goods.
