I have some exciting news about our Forced documentary!
We've had several organizations world-wide bring outreach and support for our forced marriages documentary. These organizations have held screenings, promoted our work and had dialogue about forced marriages within various communities.

So far, there's been support from:
I really hope that we can get some funding for this project, so it can be screened at several locations across Canada, along with a discussion afterwards. Often times, people don't know that their own actions bring about a vicious cycle of abuse. So by bringing this film to their community and having discussions about it, we can help bring the change. This is why we highly promote education!
