Regroupement des maisons pour femmes victimes de violence conjugale, Montréal

The Regroupement des maisons pour femmes victimes de violence conjugale is a provincial association that represents more than 40 member women’s shelters. This project centers on strengthening the capacities of shelter workers to defend the rights of victims of domestic violence and to support them in their process of taking back their power. This project aims to integrate techno-pedagogy by adapting the content of one of our courses to online and webinar formats. As requested by member shelters, The Feminist Intervention training includes theory and practice, fostering learning of intervention principles and strategies from a feminist approach. Our project will also compile and upgrade existing knowledge of our shelters to the new learning platforms. This transition to virtual learning will make it easier and more effective for the organization to reach workers in partner shelters and, possibly, those from unaffiliated shelters and partners.

Grant amount: $20,000
