The Sanctuary of Embracing Difference leads in the betterment of womyn and their families. We believe bringing Aboriginal and Migrant womyn together creates opportunities to build relationships and heal urban communities, the epicentres of multiculturalism and cultural division. Having open and honest conversations in safe and respectful spaces is paramount to this happening.
We embrace womyn who live on the fringes because of their sexual and gender identities, incarceration and mental health; we know this space exist as a minority within a minority and as such is mostly hidden in plain sight, here you are seen and you are welcomed.
We see a real need for Aboriginal and Migrant womyn to be on the same side, helping to create networks, support systems and pathways towards education, and employment, by healing themselves and growing relationships with each other.
We empower womyn to create the connections needed to begin turning the tide on isolation, silent domestic and family violence. With a support network womyn gain self-esteem and confidence which may help them find their voice and ask for help to change and heal their situation.
Building bridges and relationships will help reduce isolation, cultural division, socioeconomic division, and domestic and family violence, breaking the chain, as they walk beside each other for their shared vision.
