COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

The Avalon Legal Consultation Fund

Avalon Sexual Assault Centre, Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Avalon Legal Consultation Fund reduces barriers to the civil, family court, and criminal justice systems for survivors of sexualized violence and for parents of child survivors of sexual abuse. Avalon Sexual Assault Centre will consult with feminist lawyers and law students to develop improved policies and procedures for clients around sexual assault cases, child protection, and records applications. Legal counsel will help the Centre to protect survivors’ interests, and to provide legal information to clients or liaise with other legal professionals. This will build capacity to influence legislative reform against discriminatory practices.
Grant amount: $23,000
