On April 14, 2023 at 1:00 – 2:00pm CDT, join the Centre for Human Rights Research for an in-person presentation with CHRR Visiting Community Researcher, Dr. Karlee Sapoznik Evans, Deputy Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth. The event will take place in the Slater Boardroom, EK Williams Library in Robson Hall at the University of Manitoba. Masking is required.
Dr. Evans will be discussing Manitoba Advocate’s special report, “Every Two Hours: A Special Report on Children and Youth Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence in Manitoba.” The report, the first of its kind, follows 671 Manitoba children and youth exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) in April 2019 in order to understand their pathways through service responses from police, Victim Services, and Child and Family Services. The report repositions children exposed to IPV as centrally-impacted victims with rights to services. Informed by the voices of young people with lived experience, the Manitoba Advocate’s Elders Council, and service providers, it contains seven recommendations to improve the effectiveness and responsiveness of services for children, youth, and families in Manitoba.
