Women’s Right to be Safe

We provide a safe environment where together we can identify solutions for children, young women, working women and elders to reclaim the right to be safe. We embrace our age old teaching of individual responsibility and the value of caring for each other. Our ultimate goal as we work with you is to reduce the vulnerability of aboriginal women and girls to violence.

We do this in three ways:

1) Introduce aboriginal women and girls to the services within their communities that focus on culturally appropriate responses to safety issues.

2) Identify how aboriginal peoples can be affected by the legacies of colonization, residential schools, child welfare, addictions and abuse and may be at different places on their individual healing journey.

3) Inspire participants with stories from aboriginal women who have shown resiliency and strength in building a violence-free life or exiting one.

All of this is highlighted in our highly regarded Aboriginal Women’s Right to Be Safe Guide. To view this resource guide click here: PDF
