Our Collective Dreams: Muslim Women in Conversation about Violence against Women Part 2

January 7th, 2008     by Thea Lim     Comments

Date: January 16th Time: 5:30pm - 8:30pm Location: The Centre for Women and Trans People, Room 100 North Borden Building 563 Spadina Ave. University of Toronto Toronto, ON

Space is wheelchair accessible through Bancroft Avenue.

Join us in a discussion group on violence against women by Muslim women for Muslim women and our allies. You are invited to come yell, grieve, cry, mourn, shout, resist, talk about violence against women.

Our discussion group in mid December was a success and we hope more Muslim women and allies can attend the next group on January 16th. We hope that this discussion group will be an opportunity for us to collectively address our concerns and hopes for safety.

We are deeply saddened and angered by the murder of Aqsa Parvez. At these discussion groups we want to continue to dialogue about violence against women, how we feel and what we want to do about it in a safe, supportive environment.

Contact us if you plan to organize a discussion group in your community so we can help spread the word. We also would be happy to support you in putting one together in your area.

To participate in the ongoing dialogue and learn about upcoming discussion groups/events please join our confidential list-serve that will be moderated by organizers: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/collectivedreams or our Facebook group “Our Collective Dreams: Muslim Women in Conversation about Violence”.
