About Sagesse

Sagesse is uniquely positioned to disrupt the structures of domestic abuse through work with individuals, organizations, and communities. With innovation as our cornerstone, we work to make a difference one life at a time through our services and peer support programs. Our capacity building workshops focus on educating all members of society about abuse to help make us all better at recognizing, responding to, and preventing domestic abuse, including coercive control.

We believe everyone has a role to play in ending abuse. By working together, educating individuals, and holding ourselves accountable, we can make large-scale change to the discourse around violence and ultimately stop violence before it escalates. With this in mind, Sagesse works as the backbone organization for Calgary Domestic Violence Collective and IMPACT.
