Neighbours, Friends and Families- Engaging Immigrant and Refugee Communities
Launched in 2006, the NFF campaign 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. In partnership with the Arab Community Centre of Toronto, and OCASI, White Ribbon is leading a 1-year project, starting in March 2018 to engage immigrant and refugee communities, including Syrian male-identified youth and adults to prevent gender-based violence and engage with the NFF campaign. Together we will identify 10-15 male allies/champions to facilitate awareness-raising events in the community. To learn how you can support the project, contact Kaoutar Kaddouri, Community Engagement Manager. The project is funded by the Ministry of the Status of Women.
If you identify as a male-identified adult, and member of an immigrant or refugee community, you can apply to be a peer champion here. Deadline for applications is June 30, 2018.
