Community outreach through the ethnic media
The Shield of Athena is a leader in raising awareness in ethnic communities on the issues of conjugal and family violence. Taking into account cultural and linguistic differences, the Shield ensures that communities have equal access to information and services in Quebec for victims of family violence.
Thousands of individuals are reached annually through the ethnic media and receive vital information about family/conjugal violence, the laws, the police procedure and the resources for victims. The Shield of Athena works a great deal with the ethnic media to transmit this vital information through 1) the broadcast of our PSAs and films on family violence 2) television and radio interviews and 3) the publication of articles on the issue.
