We perform outreach to schools, youth groups, first responders and community members and present at a variety of conferences with a focus on empowering individuals. This outreach could include public speaking, campaigns, community awareness events and/or supportive programs.
We support individuals struggling emotionally from the trauma of sexualized violence and cyber-harassment. Donations are made towards other local agencies “doing it right”. We also support programs/agencies near and dear to Rehtaeh’s passions such as art, animals and reading.
We collaborate with various agencies to affect policy and procedures relating to cyber-abuse, sexualized violence and youth mental health. This could include reforms in education, mental health and/or law enforcement.
These are review files related to Rehtaeh's case.
