Violence Prevention and Safety

NWAC is committed to developing concrete actions and activities that will end the cycle of violence, particularly that which may lead to disappearance and death of Aboriginal women and girls.

NWAC has undertaken many activities organized around four key thematic areas: 1) education, 2) tools for communities, 3) partnerships, and 4) community responsiveness. These areas support NWAC’s objectives to strengthen the ability of communities, government, educators and, service providers to respond to issues of violence against Aboriginal women and girls. Also, these thematic areas work to support Aboriginal women, girls, families and communities and in turn help them to develop violence prevention strategies and respond to experiences of violence.
