May 29: Participants Needed: Focus Group for Survivors of Sexual or Gender-based Violence
Participants are needed for a focus group about sexual assault, reporting to the police and healing from violence which will be led by youth facilitators and will use participatory research activities.
One of the main goals throughout the focus group is to gain first hand knowledge/experience from survivors who have experience with reporting crimes of sexual or gender-based violence to the police which includes stalking, street harassment, intimate partner violence, sexual abuse, rape and workplace sexual harassment. This is vital to the process of informing policy and creating resources geared towards addressing the needs of the survivors which is why we are looking to hear specifically from individuals who have been through the reporting process/justice system.
Note: Confidentiality will be respected at all times as no one's names will be used in the zine, furthermore if anyone doesn't want us to use something they say in the focus group they have the right to tell us and we will fully respect their decision
Why: To help us make a resource booklet for geared towards young people who have experienced sexual assault to understand the process of reporting to the police and what other options they have to address the violence and take care of themselves
Each participant MUST register before attending the focus group and keep in mind that space is limited, so for more information or to sign up please contact the Consultations Coordinator.
