Pre-register for VJN & OFOVC Webinar — Gender-Based Violence & COVID-19: Strengthening our Pandemic Response June 18, 2020
The Victim Justice Network (VJN) in collaboration with the Office of the Federal Ombudsman present “Gender-Based Violence and COVID-19: Strengthening our Pandemic Response.” We are pleased to host the authors of two reports recently commissioned by the OFOVC, who will share their research and expertise on this topic.
During the webinar, we will discuss the role of coercive control in intimate partner violence dynamics and how to address it through the criminal justice system in Canada. We will also discuss how the pandemic has increased stresses upon already over-worked and underpaid community-based anti-violence workers and victim services teams, and the disparities in how worker wellness is supported, especially when compared to system-based first responders, such as police, firefighters, and paramedics.
EVENT WILL BE LIVE ON JUNE 18, 2020
1:30 TO 3:30 P.M. (EST)
