Lately, several people have spoken up to denounce the sexual violence they are facing. The First Nations Forum on Sexual Assault, organized by Québec Native Women in partnership with the FNQLHSSC, was an opportunity to meet, exchange and reflect collectively on solutions that will help put a stop to the problem of sexual assault within our populations. It was a moment to make a commitment together and to act towards collective healing.
During the Forum, participants had the opportunity to work on and adapt a proposed action plan to fight against sexual assault in First Nations. By the end of the forum, the improved action plan was approved by all of First Nations participants.
This is why we launched a campaign to carry the #WeHealTogether movement. This social media campaign is a call for action: in the fight against sexual assault, what can we do to heal together? How can I be doing my part? We want to compel each individual person to think about their role in the movement, and to share it on social media.
Consult the different tabs in this page to find video and written testimonies of people who have participated in the campaign, a model of the action plan to use and adapt in your communities, and an interactive map that presents the available resources across the province.
We encourage our partners to contribute to this map by filling out the form under the “Map of resources” tab.
