Welcome back, Dal and King's Students!

Oh, how we've missed you.

It has been wonderful seeing y'all back on campus over the past week, and we have particularly enjoyed meeting many of you through Dal O-Week and King's Frosh trainings! By now you have surely seen us tabling around campus at various society fairs, or speaking to your class about our services, or maybe you have even been to one of our recent anti-oppression workshops! This year we have been trying really hard to connect with as many departments, student groups, and faculties as possible on issues pertaining to sexual and gender justice, anti-oppression training, shame-free sex education, and campaigns that address the current political issues affecting students who are marginalized on the basis of gender, orientation, and/or identity.

We are so excited to be a part of the organizing committee that brought the DSU Sexual Assault and Harassment Phone Line to campus. This 24 hour, non-judgemental, confidential, peer-to-peer phone line launched this past Sunday and will be available throughout the duration of September!!

Please check out some of our upcoming events below, and be in touch with any questions at outreach@southhousehalifax.ca
volunteer@southhousehalifax.ca

or by phone at (902_ 494-2432
or in person at 1443 Seymour street, side entrance.
 
***We are not yet accessible. Please see our website for more information and be in touch with any access needs. Many of our events will be around back by the BBQ, which is accessible!!**

We hope to see you at our BBQ this Friday!!!
