Amnesty International Canada has long been campaigning alongside organizations like Women’s Shelters Canada for a National Action Plan to Prevent and Address Gender-Based Violence.
Take ACTION now to help us make an IMPACT during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign in November-December!
We are trying to collect as many petition signatures as possible in September and October, to let the federal government know that people across Canada are outraged about the inconsistency in the supports and services available to survivors of gender-based violence! These inconsistencies can be addressed if municipal, provincial, territorial, First Nations, and federal leaders come together with people with lived experience and other relevant expertise to develop a national action plan. Signatures will be handed over to the federal government during the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, which runs from November 25-December 10.
