Measure the success and strength of our community by the health and wellbeing of all citizens
In Ontario, 48 women were killed by men in their lives this past year. Every life lost tears a hole in the fabric of our society that can never be mended. To be ‘successful’ as a society, we must care deeply about all of our people and work together to create a vision of a sustainable and equitable society in which all people belong and have value.
Toward a different measure of success, the LCCEWA has released a local snapshot of statistics to start a dialogue in London. The LCCEWA is working to connect the dots between social and systemic issues that include violence against women, inequality, rising poverty, mental health, addictions, engaging men, human trafficking, affordable housing and employment.
A community is only as strong as its most vulnerable members. We want to start measuring our success as a city not only by those who are doing well, but by telling the stories and numbers of people who are struggling to survive in the current system. It is a baseline by which to chart our progress over time.
Understanding and addressing the complexity of social issues is essential for prevention, informed policies, and prioritizing support for families. It’s especially important for leaders like you to better understand that violence committed against women is not just an issue that happens between people, it is a bi-partisan societal issue that has high individual, social and economic costs that impact everyone.
London is a city with great strengths. Solutions to our most pressing problems require the engagement and support of the whole community. We are using the snapshot to tell the story of what is happening on the ground in London so that we can think together about how we can be successful as a community.
Please join us for a press release and discussion panel on February 1st at 11 am at the London Food Incubator, 630 Dundas Street, London.
