Rosalyn from EMBRAVE stopped by Roots & Resilience to speak candidly about Gender Based Violence, with a focus on newcomer, racialized communities.
A woman of colour who was born with Transexualism, Rosalyn walks with several identities. She is a single mom of two beautiful daughters. A woman living with chronic pain. A woman loving woman femme. An activist. A Pagan. An Educator. A Caregiver.
Currently, Rosalyn works with EMBRAVE, a GBV agency in Mississauga as a Counsellor/Advocate with the Community Outreach Program. She also works at East Mississauga Community Health Centre working with the Greater Trans Communities.
This podcast was conducted in collaboration with OCASI’s Peer Champion project. The goal of the IRCNFF Campaign is to increase the capacity of immigrant and refugee communities to recognize the signs of domestic violence and know how to support women who are living with abuse. The Campaign also challenges myths about domestic violence in immigrant and refugee communities. To learn more about this campaign, click here: https://www.immigrantandrefugeenff.ca/want-change/apply
