METRAC switched to Sumac because of its ease of use, superior flexibility and security features. Beyond the software itself, the Sumac team helped us along the transition process – they were accommodating and supportive to us as a small, grassroots not-for-profit organization. Andrea Gunraj, Outreach Director.
The Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children (METRAC) is a not-for-profit, community-based organization that works to prevent and end violence against diverse women, youth, and children. METRAC has three main program areas: Community Safety, Community Justice, and Community Outreach and Education.
Our work is informed by anti-oppression principles. Anti-oppression work recognizes that women, youth and children experience violence in different ways depending on factors such as their ethno-racial backgrounds, income levels, sexualities, gender identities, abilities and ages. Anti-violence 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.
