This toolkit is a guide to planning and implementing projects that use art and creative medium in anti-violence work for trans female newcomers. An emphasis on community safety for immigrant and refugee women who also identify as trans is obviously a super important way to support women making the transition to Canadian life and society.
While it’s essential for all women to be safe from violence, of course, the unique barriers faced by immigrants make this type of programming really essential.
Here’s what you’ll find in the toolkit:
-Benefits of an “expressive art process”
-Addressing marginalization as a result of community violence
-Increasing accessibility (particularly with regards to language and cost)
-Creating wider social change

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
