One Voice – Multifaith Women Working To End Violence Against Women

This project has brought together women of diverse faiths to deal with the issue of domestic violence.

Recognizing that this a problem across all faiths, the women determined that the community leaders were ill-equipped to handle the complexities of domestic violence.

Therefore, the participants of One Voice have created a guide for faith leaders: “Faith Leaders on the Front Line: Responding to Domestic Violence in Our Communities.” It is presented here in digital format. Printed copies are available.

The goal is to disseminate this document to all faith leaders across the GTA and to have continuous dialogue on its implementation. There is still much work to be done.

Please contact us if would like to help to work on this vital program and help us eliminate violence against women. Email:

Co-Chairs: Eva Karpati and Michelle Singh
