Through our podcast and public education series, we highlight the intersectionality of domestic violence. Our goal is to increase awareness, build understanding, and shift public perception so domestic violence is viewed as a societal problem that everyone has a role in ending.
The shame and stigma surrounding domestic violence can make it difficult to talk about, but this won’t change unless we have difficult conversations.
The reality is domestic violence is happening; it impacts people in all neighbourhoods and we all have a role a play in ending domestic violence.
In 2020, we launched the She Is Your Neighbour podcast where we take a deep dive into domestic violence, exploring the realities and complexities of it. In 2021, the She Is Your Neighbour project was a finalist at the Leadership Waterloo Fresh Innovator Awards.
Jenna is passionate about empowering women and shifting public perception of domestic violence. An avid storyteller, for years she was torn between becoming a journalist and working at a non-profit – now she gets to do both! Jenna completed her Masters in Journalism and Communications at Western University. In 2019, she led the creation of the She Is Your Neighbour awareness project and storytelling series, designed to highlight the prevalence of domestic violence in Waterloo Region.
Lillie started at Women’s Crisis Services in 2020 and can often be seen on their social media channels, educating the community about upcoming events, initiatives, and the She Is Your Neighbour project. She has been working behind the scenes of She Is Your Neighbour since season one of the podcast and she also likes to get creative in front of the camera when she’s creating content for Instagram and Tik Tok. Lillie always knew she would end up working in the non-profit sector and she is so grateful that she gets to mix her passions of advocacy and non-traditional media.
