Long before survivors of abuse call anonymous hotlines or police, they seek out their friends, family members and peers to find help. As KACEDA, here we believe that we must strengthen our community’s capacity to support survivors. We believe that this is a key part of the work to end domestic violence.

Community building and outreach

  • Story-telling events: KACEDA hosts semi-annual intergenerational and bilingual storytelling events. Through story-telling, community members share their experiences around family, migration, gender and more.

Education and skills-building

  • Political education workshops: KACEDA organizes educational workshops that are public or internal to members of the group. Some of the topics included are: the dynamics of domestic violence, supporting queer/trans survivors of domestic violence, community organizing 101, and more.
