Event description
Building a Blueprint to address GBV against non-status, refugee and immigrant (NSRI) women across Canada

About this Event

EVENT DATES BELOW

We are a growing network of NSRI women, service providers, organizational leaders, community advocates and academic researchers working together on a national project focused on Building Leadership Capacity to address Gender-Based Violence against non-status, refugee and immigrant women across Canada. Lead by OCASI - Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants in partnership with organizations across Canada, this project builds on decades of community-based advocacy efforts and initiatives to address GBV within and against immigrant and refugee communities in Ontario.

Over the summer, we were reporting on the differential impacts of COVID-19 on NSRI women across Canada. Providing critical awareness concerning how immigration status, gender and race intersect to inform the experiences of COVID-19 among non-status, refugee and immigrant women. During these conversations, speakers highlighted the importance of lived experiences as part of our response planning and advocacy towards addressing GBV against NSRI women.

On November 26 & 27, 2020 we are inviting you to Build a Blueprint together! We invite non-status, refugee and immigrant women, community members, service providers, organizational leaders and advocates to join our upcoming conference meeting:

  • Join us as we work towards building a national network to strengthen ongoing work addressing GBV against NSRI women.
  • Participate in collective discussions to develop advocacy plans at a national and regional level.
  • Develop meaningful relationships and partnerships to expand our collective understanding of GBV against racialized, non-status, refugee and immigrant women.
  • Support equitable opportunities that center the knowledge and expertise of NSRI women to further improve access to supports and healing for GBV across Canada.

The conference meeting is about continuing the conversation and providing a space to Build a Blueprint together! We want to incorporate ideas and perspectives to inform our future work to address GBV against NSRI women across Canada!
