PREVNet chats with Cara Kolt about UMatter, the Youth Dating Violence Prevention Program developed and delivered by Ka Ni Kanichihk Inc.
PREVNet is located at Queen’s University, situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory. This territory is included in the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Confederacy of the Ojibwe and Allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes, and we are committed to honouring this agreement. As settlers, we are grateful to have the opportunity to meet, work, learn, and play here.
PREVNet works to eliminate violence and promote healthy relationships for youth and is dedicated to working toward addressing the systemic racism and the impacts of colonization that puts marginalized groups at higher risks of violence. PREVNet believes it is our collective responsibility to listen, learn, and act to ensure the rights of Indigenous people are recognized and implemented.
