Sagesse empowers individuals, organizations and communities to disrupt structures of domestic abuse through curating environments for people to develop skills and lead safe, healthy lives.
We work each day to support individuals impacted by abuse, while also challenging norms and advocating for large-scale societal change that will eradicate abuse in Alberta. At the heart of our programming is a commitment to innovation in all facets of our organization.
Our values humble us and keep us grounded in the reality that changing social norms and behaviours is an audacious goal – one that requires tenacity and laser-beam focus.
We make a difference through prevention and intervention work, and also work to make large-scale societal change through education, collective impact, and advocacy.
We believe that we need to be innovative in disrupting the structures of abuse.
Our Blueprint for Change reflects our thinking about the causal linkages between domestic abuse and other issues and what conditions need to be in place to create actual change.
