National Action Plan to Address Gender-Based Violence: SFCC-DAWN-NEADS Students with Disabilities Consultation Registration

Hello all!
We’re writing to our networks to ask for your input! Students For Consent Culture (SFCC) is participating in the late stages of consultation for the National Action Plan to Address Gender Based Violence, under the Department of Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) of the Federal Government.

SFCC recognises that women, girls and non-binary people with disabilities are at a higher risk of experiencing gender-based and other forms of violence.  To ensure that the experiences of students living with disabilities are reflected in the National Action Plan on gender-based violence we are holding this consultation to specifically centre the voices of students living with disabilities. As such, we are collaborating with the Dis-abled Women’s Network Canada (DAWN) and The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) to facilitate a public consultation, March 29th, 10am PST / 11am MST / 12pm CST / 1pm EST / 2pm AST / 2:30pm NST for students living with disabilities.

Registration for the event and the Zoom link can be found here:

The focus of this consultation will be on the federal government’s proposed National Action Plan on Gender-Based Violence. Come share with SFCC, DAWN and NEADS as we create recommendations for Canada’s National Action Plan to address gender-based violence! Join us on Monday, March 29th at 1pm EST / 10am PST for a public consultation session for students living with disabilities. The Zoom event will include live closed captioning and ASL interpretation. We know that conversations around gender based violence can be difficult and for this reason there will be someone acting as a support-person in a breakout room if you find yourself wanting emotional support.

We are offering an honorarium of $50.00 to everyone who participates in the public consultation.
