Documents of Knowledge About Violence from African Nova Scotian Communities


Members of North End Halifax and East Preston, two African Nova Scotian communities, have been meeting together to talk about violence and ways of addressing it in their context, and in their ways. Included here are key documents that have been created from these conversations.

These include:

•   ‘Some key knowledge and ideas about violence in African Nova Scotian communities’ from women representing North End Halifax and East Preston
•   ‘Principles in relation to responding to violence in African Nova Scotian Communities’
•   ‘Men speaking out to prevent abuse’ & ‘A Brother’s food for thought’ from the men of the communities of East Preston and North Preston.

These documents have been circulated throughout the communities to spark further conversation and action on these issues.
