The Urban Women’s Anti-Violence Strategy (UWAS) is a group of Greater Vancouver Area women’s anti-violence organizations, including WAVAW, who work together to raise consciousness and keep women’s issues at the forefront of public policy agendas. In 2009 and 2010, the UWAS presented a series of community cafes throughout Vancouver which included films screenings, panel discussions and interactive forums.
In 2011 the UWAS worked together on the Put Rapists on Trial. Not Women. campaign.
