Reflections on Sexual Violence in the Context of COVID-19

October 6, 2020

This online panel discussion brings together experts from MacEwan and the wider Edmonton community to discuss critical questions about the challenges and opportunities for addressing sexual violence in our current moment.

How has the COVID-19 pandemic shaped the issue of sexual violence? How have the social and economic impacts of the pandemic shaped the experiences of survivors, as well as community efforts to prevent sexual violence and provide care and support for survivors? What issues have been brought to light and what new concerns are emerging? Join our dynamic group of panelists as they explore these questions and more.
