ABOUT THE ALBUM:
Warm Shadow is a companion piece to our second album, Outer Heaven. It's sort of like our Amnesiac, or Weird Era Continued, or untiled. unmastered., or, hell, Steal This Album by System Of A Down. You can read more about it here: bit.ly/2cT5g2J
Sistering is a trans-inclusive agency supporting women from across Toronto who experience first hand the impact of marginalization and poverty. They may be homeless, or are at risk of becoming homeless. They are a diverse group, from 16 to 80-plus years old: women with substance use or mental health issues; sex workers; women who have interactions with the criminal justice system; women who have experienced, or are experiencing, trauma and violence; immigrant and refugee women; women with health issues and disabilities; and women without legal status.
In November of 2015, Sistering began operating as a 24/7 Drop In providing low barrier access to safe space through the day, evening and overnight hours, offering shelter; hot meals; crisis intervention and trauma-informed counselling; social and housing support; mental health case support and harm reduction programming. But we don’t stop there. As part of our work, we lobby for safe, low barrier shelters, affordable housing and public transportation economically accessible for all women.
Help us change lives, one woman at a time.
