What is Draw the Line?
"Action ontarienne contre la violence faite aux femmes (AOcVF) and the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres (OCRCC) produced a dynamic sexual violence prevention campaign. In developing the campaign, they consulted extensively with service providers, grassroots organizations, advocates and survivors. The intent was to create a campaign that represents the ethnic, linguistic, cultural, sexual, economic, and geographic diversity of Ontario.
The result? Draw-The-Line.ca (DTL)
'Draw The Line' is an interactive campaign that aims to engage Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence. The campaign challenges common myths about sexual violence and equips bystanders with information on how to intervene safely and effectively.
It is our hope that 'Draw the Line' will educate Ontarians on how to spot sexual violence and empower them to make a difference.” - From DTL Site
