Purpose: This organization seeks to bridge gaps in understanding between Indigenous women and a wide range of justice system actors through the creation of an inclusive working group that will develop assessments and host collaborative discussions that promote mutual learning, with the goal of breaking down systemic barriers that negatively impact reporting and support for Indigenous survivors of sexual violence. Research on best practices and participatory forums with both Indigenous women and justice players will guide the creation of a culturally-sensitive training module for justice workers and first responders, and a plain-language booklet to improve understanding of the justice system for Indigenous women who are victims of sexual violence. Both will be available online for broad access.
