|Keeping Connected: Resisting Violence and Isolation Beyond Covid||Isolation is one of the key strategies used by perpetrators of violence and other forms of oppression. Covid-19 increased social and physical isolation on many levels and enabled further and more extreme violence, from sexualized assault and domestic violence by men against women to exploitation of low-wage and 'immigrant' workers for unbridled profit. In effect, Covid-19 has highlighted how isolation is used to violate those with less social and physical power. In this presentation, Allan will discuss some of the tactics used by children and adults to resist violence and isolation - socially, mentally, physically and spiritually. "Coming Back Stronger" means forming stronger connections and resisting the isolation that is too often enforced by public institutions.|
