METRAC (the Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children) is a community-based, not-for-profit organization based in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) that works to prevent and eliminate violence against diverse women and youth. We are committed to the right of women and youth to live free of violence and the threat of violence. Our work is informed by anti-oppression principles and we recognize that women and youth experience violence in different ways depending on factors such as their ethno-racial backgrounds, income levels, sexualities, gender identities, abilities and ages. We believe that violence prevention measures must address the distinctive experiences of diverse individuals and communities. METRAC uses an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach. We work in partnership with individuals, community groups, organizations and services, governments, institutions, educators, urban planners and health and legal professionals. METRAC is a registered charity.
