OCASI’s Initiative to End Gender-Based Violence in Immigrant and Refugee Communities provides resources, education and leadership to the settlement sector and the broader community on gender-based violence prevention and survivor support.
We facilitate resource development, public education campaigns, professional development and training, online courses, community-building, knowledge-sharing, advocacy, and use of the arts in order to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in immigrant and refugee communities.
Our work builds on decades of expertise, as OCASI has been engaged in gender-based violence prevention work since 2002. All of our work is grounded in an anti-oppressive, anti-racist and intersectional feminist framework.
The site includes access to a graphic novel, a “Which Would You Choose?” Resource Card Series, a guide for RAP providers and more.
