"I do!" is a youth initiative that is part of the project Alliance of Multicultural Agencies Against Forced Marriages in Canada at Agincourt Community Services Association. It seeks to create awareness about gender violence issues, related to forced marriages, among young women through art workshops and to film the workshops for making a documentary.

They have completed the first art workshop which involved young people (13 - 18 years of age) creating posters about what they learned. You can read about that workshop on their blog.

Currently, they are seeking 20 young women (18 - 24 years of age) for their next workshop which will teach them the techniques of Spoken Word and how to express their views about forced marriage using this art. It will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays from July 23rd to August 14th at Chester Le Community Corner (North-West Scarborough.)
