|Bridging the Gap|
Our goal is to promote a dialogue and improved relationships between Kaska women, Help and Hope for Families and other government agencies in Watson Lake, Yukon and with women's organizations in Whitehorse, community members and RCMP to address the serious abuse of women in Yukon communities and develop a plan of action together. RCMP participation and their ongoing communication and cooperation with women's and community groups is key to building trust among all participants, and improving safety for women. The sessions will serve to educate the participants on safety, the importance of accurate language, violence, responsibility, and recovery. The objective is to create lasting change through the creation of the action plan and Orientation documents for RCMP, and/or a policy statement that can be used to inform an improve social service delivery and policing for women living in Watson Lake and Whitehorse.
