Learning and Knowledge Exchanges
This companion toolkit accompanies the report “Colour of Violence: Race, Gender & Anti-Violence Services,” and details key barriers for racialized survivors seeking safety and offers best practices in developing anti-racist interventions that better supports Indigenous, Black, newcomer immigrant/refugee, and racialized survivors.
This webinar explores how the dominance of structural and dichotomous gender binaries within the gender-based violence (GBV) sector still impacts how 2SLGBTQIA+ or sexual and gender diverse people are included, treated, or recognized within the sector, especially within service delivery.
This toolkit offers guiding information on where to start and what to expect when facilitating, or coordinating, community-based research. This toolkit is part of NWAC’s plan to build research infrastructure, mentorship, and leadership in order to lead more intentional, comprehensive, intersectional, and culturally-grounded research to advance health priorities of Indigenous women, two-spirit, and gender-diverse people.
Submission to the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Regarding Immigration Detention in Provincial Correctional Facilities
This submission argues that international human rights standards indicate that immigration detention should never be punitive in nature and must not take place in facilities intended to house individuals accused or convicted of a criminal act. This submission further argues that the practice of holding immigration detainees in provincial correctional centres in B.C must end.
This report discusses how the dominance of a structural gender binary within the gender based violence (GBV) sector still impacts how 2SLGBTQIA+ or gender and sexual diverse people are included, treated, and recognized within the sector. Research, funding, legislation, and service delivery have also been impacted, and are reinforced by an archetype created to understand violence as a victim-perpetrator cisgender heteronormative experience.
