Thank you for participating in the community feedback process for the YEG Police Violence Archive. This project is intended to create an online, centralized repository of incidents of police violence, including sexual violence, in the Edmonton area. By assembling many reports of police violence, we hope to support survivors, advocates, and others working to hold police accountable and support those working towards a community-based crime prevention model.
As a community-based project, it is important to our team that the final version of the Police Violence Archive best reflects the wants and needs of our community, especially those who have experienced police violence. At the same time, it is important that community members know that it may not be possible to reconcile all the different opinions and viewpoints on the archive while also managing issues like protecting the privacy of survivors and managing legal liability. The feedback you provide here will help guide our team in making choices that best balance the diverse needs of our communities in holding police accountable.
There are several different parts of the Archive project for which you can provide feedback, and we recognize some of these might be more important to you than others. At the end of each page, you can choose to provide feedback on another section, or submit your responses. If you would like to provide an opinion or ideas for the Archive but do not want to fill out the survey, you can email our team at email@example.com
. We recognize that a online survey is not the easiest way for many people to provide feedback on the Archive - please email us if you would like to set up an alternative option, like an individual or community meeting, to share your opinions on the Archive. You can also follow the organization behind the Archive, Sexual Assault Voices of Edmonton (SAVE) on social media for updates on upcoming engagement opportunities (Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SAVEdmonton/
