Sexual Violence – African Nova Scotian Perspectives

We wanted to let you know about a new module on the free, online course Supporting Survivors of Sexual Violence: A Nova Scotia Resource.  The new module, African Nova Scotian Perspectives on Sexual Violence, was released on Nov 20, 2019. It explores the connections between historical and ongoing racism, intergenerational trauma, and sexual violence. It also focuses on African Nova Scotian resilience, community, and cultural pride.

This module was created by an African Nova Scotian Advisory Committee, made up of community members and representatives from a variety of organizations, including but not limited to East Preston Daycare and Family Resource Centre, the Association of Black Social Workers, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Halifax, and the Delmore Buddy Daye Learning Centre.

African Nova Scotian Perspectives (ANS) explores the connections between historical and ongoing racism, intergenerational trauma, and sexual violence. It also focuses on African Nova Scotian resilience, community and cultural pride.
