Indigenous Communities Safety

Ending Violence Association of BC

The Indigenous Communities Safety Project (ICSP) provides knowledge sharing to Aboriginal leadership (including governance leadership, service providers and the natural leadership) in Aboriginal communities (First Nations and urban Aboriginal communities) related to criminal justice, family justice, and child protection laws, policies, and practices that directly affect police and government responses to domestic and sexual violence, child abuse and neglect. The purpose of the project is to empower Aboriginal service providers to assist Aboriginal communities – and especially women and children – to become safer, to be aware of their legal rights, to understand the lethal risk factors and to access services and the justice system if they become victimized.
