Forced Marriage Video Resource

The TEL Media team recently worked with the College of Education and the charity Karma Nirvana to produce a video about Forced Marriage. The video informs and educates about the issues raised and give awareness to the signs to spot in young people who might become a victim of this crime.

Forced Marriages where one or both parties is married without their consent and are illegal in the UK but still pose a massive threat to thousands of individuals. This video talks to survivors of both forced marriages and honour-based abuse; a violent crime committed to defend the honour of the family/community, South Wales protection unit and Jasvinder Sanghera the CEO of Karma Nirvana.

Karma Nirvana is holding their second annual Day of Memory on the 14th July 2016 to honour the memory of those whose lives were tragically taken in abuse related to honour and/or forced marriages. #weremember
