President's Note - November 2018

AFETT President

Yolande Agard-Simmons

In times of crisis, there lie opportunities. Opportunities for us to help; to show kindness; to demonstrate in tangible ways that we are our brothers' keeper.  During the month of October, we witnessed the heart-wrenching effects of the unprecedented floods that inundated our country. Some of us may have been personally affected. Our family members, friends, neighbours and associates may have also been affected. We also witnessed the horrendous acts of violence perpetrated upon too many of our fellow citizens, and women in particular. 


In our various spheres of influence, necessity is laid upon us to do what we can to help.  


Join us on November 25, as we seek to raise the profile of this scourge of gender-based violence as we join the international community for the 16 days of activism against gender violence. And, join us on December 1, when we collaborate with Is There Not a Cause to raise funds to help the flood victims. 




Yours in service,


Yolande Agard-Simmons

President (2018/2019)
