Engaging Immigrant and Refugee Communities to Prevent Gender-Based Violence
White Ribbon is thrilled to continue its work to implement the Immigrant and Refugee Communities, Neighbours, Friends and Families Campaign (IRCNFF). The Campaign was launched in 2006, and was a component of the government’s domestic violence action plan and in direct response to recommendations of the Chief Coroner’s Domestic Violence Death Review Committee. Between April 2019-April 2020, White Ribbon will be working with community stakeholders to recruit and build the capacity of five men from immigrant and refugee communities to become White Ribbon NFF Allies. Get to know them here. Allies will flex their creativity and put their passion into practice, leading events in the community and online. To learn how you can support the project or apply to be an NFF Ally contact Kaoutar Kaddouri, Community Engagement Manager. Kaoutar can be reached at [email protected]
The project is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, Women's Issues.
White Ribbon is one of the partners of the Draw-the-Line campaign created by OCRCC and AOcVF. Draw-the-Line is an interactive campaign that aims to engage Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence. The campaign challenges common myths about sexual violence and equips bystanders with information on how to intervene safely and effectively. Draw the Line educates Ontarians on how to spot sexual violence and empower them to make a difference. One in three Canadian women will experience some form of sexual violence in their lifetime. It is time for Ontario to draw the line. We must work together to make our communities safer.
The project is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, Women's Issues and the Ontario Ministry of Education.
