Our goal is to build organizational capacity among staff, students and volunteers to better support survivors and community members through a series of training sessions, as well as promote sustainability within the organization.

Project Objectives
  • People to centre the lived experience of B-WGGD survivors of gender-based violence
  • Create a communications strategy to raise awareness about the needs of Black women, girls, and gender diverse people.
  • Conduct a comprehensive and community-based participatory research regarding experiences of gender-based violence of self-identified Black women, girls, and gender-diverse people
  • Develop a national gender equity policy to address structural factors such as gendered inequity and anti-Black racism

We are a movement to combat anti-Black gender-based violence against Black Women, Girls, Gender-Diverse & Trans people in Canada.

Our goal is to promote amourgynoir – a coin termed by our Executive Director – meaning to centre the lived experiences of B-WGGDT people and combat anti-Black gender-based violence.
