This presentation will touch on the work Laadliyan does in the South Asian community, particularly within the Peel Region with a focus on Gender-Based Violence. The presentation will focus on previous research conducted by Laadliyan’s team on this issue, a Gender Based Violence toolkit that was created, and the work Laadliyan is doing to combat this issue in their local community.
