Claudia Lopes – Practitioners

My motivation to join SaferSpaces:

I'm a women’s rights activist with a particular passion for advocating on issues related to violence against women.  I work at the Southern Africa office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBF) currently managing a project which seeks to enhance the state’s response to Gender-Based Violence within the context of Intimate Partner Violence and shelters for abused women more specifically. As a practitioner in the field of violence against women advocacy, I'd like to connect with others who share the same ideals. Looking forward to sharing ideas, knowledge and information. 

I'm working in these sectors:
Civil society and community based organisations, NGOs/CBOs
I'm specialising in these topics:
Criminal justice system, Domestic violence / Intimate partner violence, Gender-based violence, Victim support
