Stories

Neighbour

The Second Chapter of the #SheIsYourNeighbour Series

We will be sharing community stories once a month, beginning in October 2019

 

Since launching the #SheIsYourNeighbour series, many survivors have reached out to tell us that reading the stories encouraged them to open up about their own experiences. We also heard from community partners, professionals who work in the VAW (violence against women) sector, as well as family members and friends of survivors, who stood by a loved one as they experienced domestic violence. Moving forward, we will be sharing the perspectives of survivors, loved ones of survivors, and community partners.
