Creating a world without sexualized violence.

Project Respect brings together youth and adults to create awareness and dialogue about sexualized violence by encouraging critical thinking about root causes such as gender expectations and stereotypes, systems of power, and the ongoing colonization of the lands and systems we live in.

On our website you’ll find more about our approach to the work, info about our programming and community projects, and additional resources.

Project Respect is grateful to the lək̓ʷəŋən Peoples, now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt, and the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples, upon whose lands this project takes place.
