NEW Free legal information session

The Northwestern Ontario Women’s Centre and The Thunder Bay Indigenous Friendship Centre would like to invite you to a free community information session:

In Defence of Self-Defence

Join us for a free community information session to explore the complex legal issues around self–defence.  What happens when women who experience violence are (also) charged or criminalized? What should you know about the law as it relates to self-defence? What are the legal implications for women who defend themselves in the context of Gender Based Violence?  What can you do if you are charged with assault for defending yourself?
