Cultural and Honour Based Violence Seminar


Mission Statement:

Victim Services of Sarnia Lambton, Inc. is a non-profit community based organization working in co-operation with local emergency service providers and other related community services to meet the short-term needs of victims of crime and tragic circumstances by providing emotional support, practical assistance and referrals to community resources.


How can you help?

Dealing with crisis is something that we all face at some point in our lives. No-one is immune to violence, crime or uncontrollable circumstance. Sudden death, physical abuse, sexual assault, suicide or theft can happen to us/our loved ones at any moment. When it does happen, we can be overwhelmed by shock, grief, sadness, fear, confusion and loss.

  • What help is available?
  • Will we be left to cope by ourselves?
  • Who will help? YOU CAN HELP!

Ending violence against women requires that we know it, recognize it, and name it. Violence against women is a global phenomenon and crosses all socio-economic, class, and caste systems.  However, some cases of violence against women are embedded in harmful cultural practices, such as honour killings, dowry deaths, child marriages, and female genital mutilation.  Consideration of culture is necessary to understand culturally rooted violence and develop successful and sustainable strategies for prevention.
