Uber Announces Supports to Domestic Violence Survivors and Anti-Violence Agencies in Canada During COVID-19

Today Uber announced its partnership with organizations supporting survivors of gender-based violence, by providing 50,000 free rides and additional support to shelters and safe spaces in more than 35 cities across 17 countries.

“EVA BC is proud to partner with Uber since they set an excellent example of how corporations can use their assets for great good. Uber’s generous offer today to provide our organization with 1,000 free deliveries in Metro Vancouver will help ensure that equipment our frontline workers need to do their jobs will get delivered to them without taxing our already swamped office. Because of this initiative, victims and survivors of gender-based violence will gain greater support during this challenging COVID-19 period and beyond.” – Tracy Porteous, Executive Director, Ending Violence Association of BC
