Building a Bigger Wave

project start date: April 12, 2013

Building a Bigger Wave is a provincial network of Violence Against Women Coordinating Committees. VPGB is a member and is working to make this network an effective way to link organizations and people across the province that are passionate about ending violence. The BBW Network was established in 2011 at a provincial forum that brought all 48 coordinating committees together for the first time. You can read more about the birth of the network in the Forum Report in the Resources on this site. We are now planning the second BBW Forum on October 29,20 2015 in Toronto. Find out more about the network and the great things happening in Ontario at www.buildingabiggerwave.org
