Today is International Human Rights Day will you donate $40 toward legal services and advocacy for women survivors of gender-based violence?
Every day, all over Canada, women and girls continue to face violence and abuse in their homes, schools, workplaces, online, and on the streets and every other day a woman is killed by her intimate partner.
So we take action every day to bring justice and safety in the lives of women living with violence through advocacy and services. Our support workers and legal advocates make the difference in the lives of thousands of women every year. We responded to 18,000 requests for service in 2018 and 80% of these requests included at least one legal issue.
Today with your gift of $40 a woman will have access to legal information, access to pro bono and low bono unbundled legal services, court preparation and court accompaniment and family law lawyers receive free of charge “para”legal support from our legal advocates including document drafting and form completion.
Help women’s access to justice and safety because it is a human right. Please give $40 today.
