Globally, 1 in 3 women have experienced physical or sexual violence in their lifetimes (UN Women). Nationally, intimate partner violence is the most common kind of violence women experience (BC Government). In Vancouver, there was a 129 percent increase in sexual assault by strangers from 2019 to 2021 (CTV news).  

 

Despite such an alarming status quo, there remains a lack of education on topics pertaining to personal safety and well-being, fostering cultures of consent, and awareness about available support systems and resources.

 

To help improve safety, we officially launched Project Lyghtnyng. This series of educational workshops aims to decrease violence and abuse through informing a culture of consent, promoting inclusion by flipping victim-blaming narratives, increasing access to resources, and fostering allyship.
