OCRCC: Federal Election Toolkit

  • Thinking about the impacts the upcoming federal election could have on important issues, such as reproductive rights, gender-based violence, the experiences of marginalized communities, community violence and systemic inequalities? 
  • Talking to local candidates in your community? 
  • Going to a candidates’ meeting/debate? 

The federal election is an important time. In our experience, investment and engagement from political candidates makes a big difference in prevention programs, response policies and better resources for survivors of sexual violence – and for other issues connected to these concerns. 

Learning and talking about these matters can help to foster the changes we wish to see. Use our Election Toolkit below for some useful tools.
