Engaging Survivors in Peterborough
WomenatthecentrE, working with the Peterborough Domestic Abuse Network, met with some amazing women from the Peterborough region to support them in their efforts to get involved in their community. The meeting was facilitated by Eleni Rautiainen, the coordinator of the Peterborough Domestic Abuse Network, and was an opportunity to listen, to network, and to talk about some of the challenges women face in speaking up about abuse.
However the focus was on opportunities available for women, and the ways such participation can transform not just the individual, but the community. WomenatthecentrE will be following up with training for the woman in the fall of 2010.
