Justice for Nina
“If you don’t behave, I will have you deported.” Nina’s husband told her after another weekend of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
And by behave, Nina’s husband means she can never say “No”.
Imagine experiencing abuse daily, only to find out seven years later that your husband lied to you and never applied for your immigration sponsorship, and now you are facing deportation?
Take Action to Combat Gender-Based Violence
During Prevention of Violence Against Women Week, we engage our communities in GBV education, and to remind each other that we all have a role to play in preventing gender-based violence in our relationships, in our community, and in our society.
Justice for Indigenous Women
For the past two years we have worked in solidarity with the BC Association of Friendship Centres to deliver a Provincial Core Training for Advocates to End Violence against Indigenous Women and Two-Spirit People.
Supporting Indigenous women’s leadership and promoting Indigenous women’s rights is essential part of preventing violence against Indigenous women.
“Dehumanized, Commodified, Hyper-Sexualized = MMIWG2S”
The trainees from Provincial Core Training Cohort selected this message for their resistance collage.
Justice or “Just” a piece of paper?
