November is Family Violence/Abuse Prevention Month. Every week this Nov, MAWS invites you to a free, virtual screening of films that spotlight the devastating effects of gender-based violence, colonization & intergenerational trauma, as well as how to provide trauma-informed support for survivors. Each film will be followed by a short Q&A/discussion.
