Description

In this second session of the "It's Time" Gender-Based Violence Prevention Initiative learning series, Commitment to Action partners will have the opportunity to hear from the Community Advocates Project Team and will hear about their 'Journey Through Domestic Abuse' maps.

The Community Advocates Project Team is a partnership between CIAFV and the City of Edmonton and is comprised of women who have experienced family violence and want to be a part of educating others about their experience.

The ‘Journey Through Domestic Abuse’ maps were developed as a project of the City of Edmonton’s Making Connections - Community Advocacy group in partnership with M.A.P.S. Alberta Capital Region and have become part of the Community Advocates advocacy work. The maps reflect the experiences of the 9 women who participated and are a composite of all their experiences. These maps were created to engage stakeholders in conversation about what works and does not work in supporting women in their journey through domestic violence.

The maps will help to:

* To examine the roles we have when dealing with those who have lived experience

* To stress the importance of understanding the dynamics of domestic abuse from a survivor's perspective

* To learn from those who have lived experience - they are the experts

* To create a space of deeper understanding of women who experience domestic abuse

You will also learn more about the work of the Community Advocates and gain an understanding of why hearing from survivors themselves is an important component in addressing, and stopping, gender-based violence in our various organizations, companies and community groups.

The session will be held on the 3rd floor of Edmonton Tower, room 3-380.
