Ending Violence B.C. recognizes Squamish Nation woman’s community work
A residential school survivor who transformed her life is being recognized for her work helping First Nations families struggling with domestic violence.
Doris Paul – Xele’milh – of the Squamish Nation is being honoured by Ending Violence B.C. with the group’s Be More Than A Bystander award.
Paul works with the North Vancouver RCMP and West Vancouver Police as the Aboriginal Victim Specialist Worker for the Domestic Violence Unit, helping workers approach sensitive scenarios with more care.
Her work started after she acknowledged her own struggle with alcohol abuse.
