Webinar: Domestic Violence Awareness Month
November 24, 2022 – 10 AM – 11 AM MST
In Canada, we acknowledge November as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To honor and recognize this time, we will hold a webinar to create a space for speakers to talk about their journeys, and varying support resources for instances of domestic violence. Join us in this conversation to learn more about systemic barriers that put equity-deserving communities at higher risk of violence, and how we can work toward eliminating these barriers around us.
