Jewish Women’s Group Reaches Across Cultures to Educate on Honour Based Violence
Hear Aruna Papp, a survivor of honour based violence, speak about her life; and how she became the voice to thousands of Canadian girls and women living in quiet desperation who are victims of culturally rooted, gender based violence.
Aruna is a nationally and internationally recognized educator, author and advocate of human rights. She is one of the driving forces behind the proposed legislation (Bill S-7 – Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices) which amends Canadian immigration and criminal laws with the aim of keeping polygamists out of Canada and preventing women and girls from being married against their will.
A dessert reception and book signing will follow.
Tickets can be purchased at the Pride of Israel Synagogue or at arunapapp.eventbrite.ca
