Description

A Better Man

Tuesday, November 28
2 – 4.30 p.m. at the Revue Cinema, 400 Roncesvalles.

All Family Service Toronto staff are invited to attend the screening of the outstanding documentary film “A Better Man”. The event includes a keynote presentation by the creator of the film, co-writer and co-director, Attiya Khan.

The movie is followed by discussions and Q&As with Attiya.

Attiya is a Toronto-based feminist, intimate partner violence survivor, and long-time advocate and counselor for abused women and children. Attiya conceived the idea for A Better Man in 2012, drawing on her personal and professional experience with intimate partner violence. Attiya has worked in women’s shelters in Canada and the United States, including running the Child and Youth Services Program at Transition House in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She also worked at YWCA Toronto, supporting the communications and advocacy team, managing a training program on crisis intervention, and administering the December 6th Fund, which offers interest-free loans to women fleeing domestic violence. As a writer, activist, and speaker, she has presented at numerous events and conferences related to domestic violence. Together with her family, she recently co-founded a YWCA Toronto scholarship program for domestic violence survivors.
