“Strong Hands Stop Violence”
On November 25th, 2017, the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) hosted our second annual poetry night to give a voice to women, girls, survivors of violence, and allies. The evening included readings from both emerging and established poets, live musical performances, and a collective art project.
The ongoing art project is called “Strong Hands Stop Violence”. Participants of ONWA’s poetry night dipped their hands in orange and blue paint and placed them on a canvas to signify standing together to eliminate violence against women and girls.
