During her visit to Halifax, Lana Wells, the Brenda Strafford Chair in the Prevention of Domestic Violence delivered three talks at three different events, all addressing primary prevention of domestic violence. On the first night, Lana Wells and Catherine Martin, Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Studies, delivered a Q and A style presentation discussing gender-based violence and primary prevention at Mount Vincent University in Halifax. The next morning, Lana who was the keynote speaker then impressed over 80 practitioners, funders, and leaders from around the province by her enthusiasm at the Roots and Branches conference. They were interested in Lana’s presentation of the project Shift, its history and its impact as they were inspired to replicate the model. Closing up at the third event, Lana facilitated a discussion on the prevention of domestic violence and sexual violence.
