If you or someone you know has recently experienced gender-based violence, you might fear that the person who committed harm might do it again. Safety planning is something you can do to make a plan or do things to protect yourself or others.
Our Understanding Consent Culture workshops run regularly from September to April. Currently we are offering a free online version of this training that is open to students, faculty and staff as well as community members.
Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. When you are asking for help about an issue that might feel really private, confusing and/or embarrassing, it is important to get support that is non-judgmental, without pressure, and informed.
Supporting a Survivor Workshops
This workshop provides some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. Throughout the workshop we will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone. Workshops are offered several times throughout the fall and winter semesters, are open to everyone, and are free of charge.
The Men’s Circle
The Men’s Circle at UVic aims to challenge gender-based violence and dominant constructions of masculinity. These gatherings are open to all men and masculine identified people (not just students!) so come and bring a friend or two!
