The STOPS to Violence Network is dedicated to bringing people together to affect long-term systems change that will reduce interpersonal and gender-based violence and abuse in Saskatchewan.
We are a province-wide network drawing on our collective wisdom to promote and take coordinated action toward healthy relationships and strong, peaceful communities free of violence and abuse, and where all people are safe and valued. We are network partners made up of community organizations, government partners, service providers and individuals from across the province.
Our approach is two-fold
We believe that impactful systems change requires collective vision with a coordinated network approach.
At STOPS to Violence, we intentionally invest in network development, governance, and systems leadership. Our goal is to foster a strong, active, connected network that is resilient, informed, collaboratively engaged, and adaptive in dealing with the complexities of addressing violence.
At STOPS to Violence, we gather as a network to determine our shared agenda and determine movement and actions that we collectively and individually progress toward positive social change and equity.
“Collective impact is a network of community members, organizations, and institutions that advance equity by learning together, aligning, and integrating their actions to achieve population and systems-level change.”
