EPISODE SIX: FLORE
Flore is a mother, college student and survivor advocate for victims of gender-based violence. After leaving her abusive marriage, Flore connected with the incredible organization, Sanctuary for Families which helped her navigate the legal and and personal matters associated with ending a marriage when violence is involved. She now works as a survivor leader and advocate, counselling and supporting domestic violence survivors. Flore shares with Between Headlines what it was like to stick up for herself and her family, and her experience shedding victimhood in order to thrive in her new life, while pursuing her education and raising children. With domestic violence cases on the rise through the pandemic, she talks about what to look for and how to be supportive if someone you know may be in danger.
