She then organized the very first forum conversation on breaking the silence on violence against women in Manitoba in November 2015, to begin a conversation with our government, religious and community leaders about breaking our silence on violence against women and girls in our province.
Since then Deborah-Zita has held numerous and various awareness events against violence against women and girls throughout Manitoba.
