Forwarding on behalf of the BC Federation of Labour and Kelly Sidhu, PSAC BC Regional Council Women’s Coordinator.
The BC Federation of Labour recently hosted an online panel on Sexual and Domestic Violence During COVID-19.
You can watch the recorded session, and will also find panelist slides from EVA BC and WAVAW, as well as captioning transcripts here: https://bcfed.ca/content/sexual-and-domestic-violence-during-covid-19-community-conversation.
We encourage you to donate to the organizations doing work in community to support people experiencing sexual and domestic violence, and their loved ones, and the preventative work that goes along with that.
