Compassion Globally is working peacefully to substantially reduce the abuse and sexual violence inflicted upon women and girls living in Canada.
Our Mission: To establish a society free from violence against girls and women, and a culture of respect and consent.
According to Statistics Canada, in 2014, 636,000 Canadians self-reported sexual abuse of some kind. While most violent crime rates have declined over the past 10 years, why are sexual assault numbers not improving? In most assault cases, offenders have been men and thus by its very nature, this makes sexual abuse a men’s issue, a women’s issue and a HUMANKIND issue.
LET US BEGIN A CONTINUING DIALOGUE ABOUT SEXUAL VIOLENCE. WHY IS IT STILL HAPPENING?
Under the leadership of former Canadian Prime Minister and Noble Peace Prize winner, Lester Pearson, Canada was internationally recognized as a nation working towards peaceful solutions to various social issues. It is pertinent to carry this vision forward and tackle the looming issue of sexual violence with compassion.
