Take Back the Night

Take Back the Night is a powerful opportunity for women and non-binary people to build connections, reclaim our right to safety, and courageously stand up against violence in our community.

Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair

The Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair, organized by SACHA, celebrates and creates spaces for marginalized groups to have discussions about feminism through do-it-yourself publishing.

Chocolate Fest

Chocolate Fest is SACHA's biggest and chocolatey-est fundraiser. If you are interested in volunteering at Chocolate Fest, reach out through our contact form.

Public Education volunteers are mainly responsible for helping create public awareness about SACHA, our services, and upcoming events. This is mostly done through tabling at events and festivals in the Hamilton Area (including Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Dundas, and Waterdown). They also help assist at public education workshops (online and in person) with logistics, group facilitation, and demonstrations.

This intake period of Public Education volunteers is now closed. Please check back again for future intake periods or email Miranda at miranda@sacha.ca to inquire.
