Canada World Youth Survey: Safety in Charlottetown

How safe do you feel in Charlottetown? How do your gender and identity affect your sense of safety?

Canada World Youth volunteers Jane-Joan Mensah and Sean MacLean have collaborated with the Advisory Council on the Status of Women to develop a safety audit survey for Charlottetown residents. The purpose of this survey is to gain perspective on the views of safety in Charlottetown from Charlottetown residents and make connections to issues of gender-based violence. The responses will be collected until the closing date on December 1st, 2014.

SURVEY LINK: http://surveymonkey.com/s/charlottetownsafetyaudit

The final results will be presented to the Mayor of Charlottetown at Charlottetown City Hall in December. The final results can also be retrieved through the Advisory Council on the Status of Women blog later in December on this blog post.

Thank you in advance on behalf of Canada World Youth and the Advisory Council on the Status of Women for your participation.

Memorial Services for Victims of Violence

Demand a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.

The Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence (Campagne du ruban violet contre la violence) was initiated by the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women in 1991 to remember the 14 women who were murdered at L’École Polytechnique in Montreal in December 1989, and to raise awareness about violence against women.

December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. We remember fourteen young women who in 1989 were murdered because they were women in what became known as the Montreal Massacre. We remember nine women since 1989 murdered on Prince Edward Island by men who knew them. Join others in your community to light a candle of remembrance, to remember, to reflect, and to act so these murders end.

We are very grateful to the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) for allowing us to share their Sisters in Spirit logo “Grandmother Moon” on this year’s Purple Ribbon Campaign bookmarks.

We also appreciate working with the Aboriginal Women’s Association of PEI (AWA) on the theme of missing and murdered Indigenous women. They have assisted Council and staff to better understand the realities of Aboriginal women, and have helped to make meaningful connections with Indigenous organizations and communities on PEI.
