About the Program
Our program “Safe Families in Safe Communities” aimed to break the systemic, psychological and socio-economic barriers, by educating girls and women on rights and emergency plans towards taking precautionary measures to live in safety.
The program “Young Women’s Safety Network” aimed at bringing girls from diverse groups in training, learning and bringing forward community issues on gender-based teen violence by looking at relevant barriers and community support systems that are available in the South Asian community. Youth from the Nancy Campbell Academy, with their dance performance, dramatically depicted the issues our communities face.
We are thankful to Toronto Police Service Division 31 for their support in utilizing their Community Room to conduct weekly workshops, meetings and events.
We are grateful to Executive Director of Jane & Finch Community Legal Clinic, Noland Merrick, as well as Uzma Akhtar, Immigration Lawyer, Elizabeth Dipchand, founder of Dipchand LLP, and Sheldon Inkol, partner of Blaney McMurtry LLP, for their contribution in assisting clients facing domestic violence, with their legal issues.
