News Collaborative Tables Addressing Violence Collaborative Tables Addressing Violence Blueprint Project Update – September 2022 The Blueprint Project currently supports 3 Communities of Practice who unite to identify and seek to redress barriers and gaps experienced by survivors of domestic violence who identify as an Indigenous, or newcomer, immigrant, or refugee woman, and 2SLGBTQ+ members. As collaborative, interagency tables, we hope to connect with members from the 3 communities, as well as service providers working to address violence, including prevention, responses, and support services with a particular focus on domestic violence and gendered services. The 2SLGBTQ+, Indigenous and Newcomer, Immigrant and Refugee Communities of Practice (CoP) gather monthly for 90-minute meetings facilitated by members of each community. The CoP contribute to the revisions of assessment protocols and tools, raise awareness about local challenges and successes in serving survivors of domestic violence, and connect with members they may not otherwise connect with. We are currently seeking members to join the CoPs to co-create a provincial-wide network of service providers and community members who share a common concern and passion to develop and delivery equitable services that are culturally appropriate and trauma informed.
