In recognition of National Victims of Crime Awareness Week April 6-12, the DisAbled Women’s Network of Canada (DAWN Canada) is launching a campaign aimed at informing women with disabilities and Deaf women about their right to report abuse and to have their abusers tried in court. Entitled “We Can Tell and We Will,” the campaign includes a Public Service Announcement which depicts two women with intellectual disabilities and one with a communication difference describing abuse and stating that abuse is unacceptable.  The Avalanche spoke with Bonnie Brayton of DAWN Canada to fill us in on this campaign.
