We are excited to invite you, your company, your friends and colleagues to join us at the 9th Annual Be Brave Luncheon on October 28, 2022 from 11:30-1:30 MST. This event raises significant funding to help us operate the Be Brave Ranch where children and teens receive specialized, intensive treatment for child sexual abuse.

This year we are proud to have the event take place in person at the Edmonton Convention Centre, AND virtually so guests can log in across Canada from their office or the comfort of their own home.

 

Our keynote speaker this year is Jeeti Pooni. Jeeti broke her silence of being sexually abused as a young child. Jeeti’s outing of the veil of silence has been a spark for much needed conversations to end the violence and abuse experienced not only by women in the Indian community but all communities.

Jeeti Pooni is a Motivational Speaker, the author of The Silent Stoning, and the driving force behind her documentary film Because We Are Girls, that shares the story of her and her sisters.

Jeeti has persevered through the arduous journey of a long tried sexual assault court case. She is an advocate for cultural change, gender equity and a voice for all those that have suffered sexual abuse. She lives in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada with her husband and two daughters.
