We can reduce gendered violence by 80% in Alberta in one generation.

But we need your support to make this happen.

The Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters with member shelters has developed tested and proven intervention and prevention tools that:

  • empower seniors, women and children who have experienced domestic violence towards lives free from abuse
  • reduce domestic violence homicides by working with survivors on tools that analyze and assess the statistical likelihood of their abuse escalating to murder
  • enhance the mother/child bond for healthier futures
  • educate the health care sector and elevate care for survivors of abuse
  • inspire men to take action in ending violence towards women
  • recruit youth as leaders to interrupt peer behaviors that permit a culture of gendered violence
  • enhance media literacy, encouraging accountable mass communication  
  • support shelters in strengthening connections with business, law enforcement and government bodies for improved community collaborative responses
  • provide businesses the tools to support employees by educating them about the signs of DV, connecting them to supports in the community and assisting with policy development to protect workplace safety and reduce costs

We know what it’s going to take:  financial support from allies like you to get these proven tools into shelters and advance this programming in the community.   

Corporate and individual donations are at an alarming low in our province.  There is funding available from government and foundations for innovation:  pilots, reviews and external scans, but scarce support to implement things once you’ve proven they can work.   

Please become our partner and help us end gendered violence by 80% in one generation - for this is an issue that truly touches us all.
