Dr. Ferzana Chaze and Dr. Bethany Osborne, and their fellow authors family lawyer Archana Medhekar, and Dr. Purnima George, Ryerson University discuss their recently published book Domestic Violence in Immigrant Communities: Case Studies. This book opens up an important conversation about the impact of domestic violence within immigrant communities and seeks solutions for how the social service and justice sectors can work more effectively to support vulnerable immigrant women and their families.
In this webinar they are joined by an exciting panel of experts, to discuss the importance and relevance of the topic, and possible next steps in breaking the cycle of violence. We will be welcoming Justice Gerri Wong from the Family Court; Lianne Kendall, Sheridan’s Sexual Violence Response Specialist; Antionette Clarke from Peel Family Mediation; and Professor Nick Bala from Queen’s University.
