Gender-centered Support

ACCEC is a staunch advocate for women within the justice system who have survived sexual assault, domestic violence, and structural violence. Our advocacy takes the form of meticulously crafted ACCEC court reports, strategically presented to Alberta’s provincial court. These reports serve as powerful documents that urge the court to acknowledge not only the health and social disparities faced by these survivors but also to recognize their lived experiences, vulnerabilities, and the pressing need for culturally safe interventions. By drawing attention to these critical aspects, ACCEC aims to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the unique challenges faced by women in these situations and to advocate for justice that is not only legally sound but also sensitive to the cultural context and individual experiences of the survivors.
