Shakti Film Festival 2020

Published

on

Shakti Society is a nonprofit society committed to empowering women, families, and children through community forums, Shakti Awards, annual wellness days, and other activities. Our mandate is to support all members of society, especially women, in finding their power and voice to become strong leaders and advocates for themselves and the community. We have introduced various initiatives that help ‘awaken the power within’ and create dialogue around feminism and gender equality. The Shakti Film Festival is our latest undertaking in our mission to increase and acknowledge women’s contribution to our society and their representation in film.

Shakti Society has addressed the influence of media and films on violence against women and we will be focussing and promoting films that showcase women in strong roles as well as filmmakers who are often marginalized due to various barriers, like race, color, finances, language, disability, sexual orientation and various health issues including mental health.

Due to the current pandemic, we will be hosting our inaugural film festival in a digital format where films will be screened over two days, October 10th and 11th, in honor of the International Day of the Girl Child. We will be inviting film and media personalities as well as community leaders to engage in action-oriented discussions about the role that media plays in shaping society and how we as consumers of media also play a big part in creating our culture.

This year’s program is set for October 10-11, 2020, and will consist of films that will include:

  • 1 Feature Film: 60 mins or longer
  • 1 Documentary Film: 45 min or longer
  • 1 Short Film: up to 20 mins
  • 1 Student Film: up to 8 mins

People of all genders are welcome to submit their films as long as a woman holds one of the following positions within the filmmaking team: Director, Writer, Cinematographer or Producer.

Films must fall within one of the following themes:

  • Violence Against Women
  • Political Participation of Women
  • Women and Environmental Challenges
  • Race, Gender, Identity
  • Men and Boys as Allies

The Submission Deadline is September 30th, 2020.

Citizen driven initiative to crowdsource, compile, and share COVID-19 data on exposure events in your community at businesses such as grocery stores, restaurants, and malls.

Published

on

COVID Reported (www.covidreported.com) provides daily updates regarding potential exposures in your community at businesses such as grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, salons, and malls. We combine all available exposure data into one centralized database, empowering you to keep you and your family safe by providing you with a more complete picture of COVID-19 activity in your community. We take the potentially lifesaving data, analyze it, map it, and send critical alerts in situations when a business has more than 3 exposure events within a 60-day period or when we notice other patterns in specific geographical locations which may pose a potential exposure risk to you and your family. 𝐏𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 “𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞” 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐩𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐮𝐩𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬.

We also rely on people like you to help crowdsource data on exposure events that may not be well publicized. When you send us a tip, we verify the information and share this critical data with the COVID Reported community, all while keeping your identity private. With your help, we can prevent the spread of COVID-19, keep families safe, prevent deaths, and help ease restrictions. And unlike COVID alert apps which only provide notifications after a potential exposure, COVID Reported can also help protect you from being exposed in the first place.

Are you aware of a COVID-19 exposure event at a grocery store, restaurant, coffee shop, salon, or mall? If so, please contact us.

1) The name and address of the business, when the infected employee was working at the business, and when and where the exposure information was posted.

2) Any supporting documents you have such as a news story, an email from the businesses confirming the exposure event, or a Facebook/Instagram/Twitter post from the business which confirms the exposure.

Why did we start COVID Reported? We are a father and son team that started this project in order to provide as much information as we can to help keep you, your family, and our communities safe. We are in much more deadly wave of COVID-19 and the most recent scientific evidence shows that those who are infected with COVID-19 yet are asymptomatic can still experience lifelong health complications such as serious lung damage. Our motto sums up our mission, share the info, see the info, stop the spread.

As Flu Shots Remain Scarce, Two Flu Vaccination Clinics in Surrey Have Hundreds of Appointments Available

Published

on

Amid reports of family doctors and pharmacies running out of vaccines, and of patients’ flu vaccine appointments being canceled, two mass flu immunization clinics in Surrey are open and welcoming patients.

The clinics, which opened on November 2 and will run through December (or until supplies run out) are open to all Surrey and North Delta residents.

Jointly operated by Fraser Health and the Surrey-North Delta Division of family practice, these clinics have the capacity to provide thousands of flu vaccines, depending on demand and availability, and they are far from fully booked.

“We designed these clinics with the understanding that the demand for flu vaccines this year would be much higher than in previous years,” says Tomas Reyes, Executive Director of the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family practice. “Now that supplies have become scarce in our communities, we want to encourage anyone in Surrey and North Delta who still needs a flu shot to book an appointment – this is what these clinics were designed for.”

Those wishing to receive a vaccine will have to be free of any COVID-19 symptoms, and screening will be conducted at the vaccination sites before each appointment. Appointments can be booked online at https://surreynorthdeltaflushot.secureform.ca, where patients will also be able to select the time and location of their appointment.

Spots are expected to fill quickly, so organizers recommend booking as soon as possible.

About the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice

Established in 2010, the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice is comprised of nearly 400 physicians at various career stages, 40 resident doctors and 200 Medical Office Assistants from across Surrey and North Delta.

Two Immunization Clinics Opened This Week in Surrey

Published

on

On November 2, two large immunization clinics offering accessible flu vaccines opened in Surrey. Jointly operated by Fraser Health and the Surrey-North Delta Division of family practice, these clinics will provide flu vaccines to the Surrey-North Delta community, during the upcoming two to three months they will be in operation.

The clinics will be operating in two locations – at the Newton Urgent Primary Care Centre and at the Axis Primary Care Clinic in Cloverdale and will offer vaccination services by appointment only.

The two organizations have worked together to implement these clinics in a very short amount of time in order to meet increased community demand.  These clinics are available in addition to the traditional channels of pharmacies and family physicians providing flu vaccines to their patients.

The clinics will be open to everyone and will accommodate individuals struggling with barriers to access, such as low-income individuals and those without a family physician.

Those wishing to receive a vaccine will have to be free of any COVID-19 symptoms, and screening will be conducted at the vaccination sites before each appointment. Appointments can be booked online at https://surreynorthdeltaflushot.secureform.ca, where patients will also be able to select the time and location of their appointment.
