CADVA (The Caribbean American Domestic Violence Awareness Group) is conducting a survey on the attitudes in the Caribbean towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) community. This survey is a buildup towards a series of initiatives planned for the summer of 2014 to include a Caribbean region-wide conference on youth violence and a workshop on domestic violence.
CADVA is appealing to readers of your newspaper to log on to the website and complete the survey. The survey can be accessed here
and takes about 10 minutes to fill out.
Founded by domestic violence survivor, Sukree Boodram, CADVA has been involved in an ongoing campaign against all forms of violence in both the Caribbean and North America. Previous activities have included a successful rally “Break the Silence” in 2010 and the highly accomplished International Youth Conference in Guyana last year. This year CADVA’s activities will be conducted in Trinidad and Tobago and Haiti.
For the 2014 initiatives CADVA is inviting entities and individuals interested in collaborating or partnering to contact CADVA at firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals and organizations are also invited to send ideas and suggestions.
