ALiGN researcher Nasreen Rajani presented a paper titled “Silencing violence 2.0: Examining online activism by marginalized groups in ending violence against women in Canada” at the Mediating Change Conference, held on 1-2 November 2018 at University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, USA.

The conference was an interdisciplinary media and justice conference for researchers, media practitioners, educators, and activists. The conference focused on “the roles of media in creating a more equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and just society.”  Its goal was “to bring scholars, media practitioners, educators, and/or activists together in one space so that we can all learn from and about each other’s research, creative projects, tools, and strategies.”

Rajani is currently completing her doctoral dissertation on digital media and activism of minority groups against violence against women in Canada.
