In January 2008, the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC) offered a 14-hour allyship training for ten men under the name Men’s Anti-Rape Coalition (MARC) Project.The MARC Project developed over the years into what is now the Male Allies program, remaining committed to providing men with opportunities to learn how they can work to end sexual violence.

In honour of the program’s 10th anniversary, we will be hosting events, facilitating workshops, and sharing resources on a different topic each month, such as Raising Healthy Sons, Enthusiastic Consent, and Race & Masculinity. January will focus on Celebrating Our History as the first program of its kind run by an Ontario sexual assault centre.

We look forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary with you!
