CBC Townhall-March 29th, 2010: Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin on Violence Against Women


Moving beyond stereotypes of family violence in
South Asian communities in the Greater Toronto Area

Tune in to CBC Radio for a one hour special broadcast of our townhall Turning Point. It will be broadcast to the province on Sunday April 11th between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m.. Following the broadcast the audio will be made available on this Web site.

Thank-you to everyone who attended and participated in our town hall on March 29, 2010.

Our townhall aimed to create mutual understanding and awareness of family violence issues in the G.T.A’s South Asian communities and break down cultural stereotypes perpetuated by recent high-profile murders of South Asian women in our community.

The discussion focused on what needs to be done to move forward to address these issues, both within the South Asian communities and in the rest of the city.

Moderated by Metro Morning’s Matt Galloway, our townhall discussion was recorded. Highlights are available on this Web site, http://www.cbc.ca/toronto/features/familyviolence/
