Find out how to recognize the different types of sexualized violence, including sexual assault, abuse, harrassment and exploitation.You don’t have to be a therapist to support someone who’s experienced sexualized violence. Our guide explains how to create a safe space and help them feel in control.
Avalon’s offices and operations are based on Mi’kmaw territory, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. The people of the Mi’kmaw Nation have lived on this territory for millennia. We acknowledge them as the past, present and future caretakers of this land.
