Virtual event – Zoom
Tuesday, April 30, 2024, 12 – 1:15pm

According to Statistics Canada, Manitoba had the highest provincial rates of police-reported family violence and intimate partner violence in 2022. However, rates of reporting are known to be substantially greater than what has been recorded. Sadly, the challenges of reporting for Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit are far greater. The presentation will outline the challenges of reporting and how can you minimize the stigma.
