our story

She Is Your Neighbour is an awareness project and storytelling series created by Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region. The project aims to explore the realities and complexities of domestic violence by sharing stories from people of all walks of life.

For too long, domestic violence has been viewed as a personal and private issue, rather than a societal problem. There is often shame and stigma associated with domestic violence which can make it difficult to talk about. For many of us, it’s not something that we want to talk about, think about, or imagine happening – especially not in our own neighbourhoods.

Unfortunately, avoiding it won’t make it go away. The reality is, domestic violence IS happening. It impacts many different people, in many different neighbourhoods.

That is why we created this awareness project to emphasize that she is your neighbour and we all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.
