Brittany Davis is the current Program Coordinator for Shift BC, The Government of British Columbia’s Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General’s CRV pilot initiative which was funded through Public Safety Canada’s Community Resilience Fund.
Shift is a secondary violence prevention and resiliency-building pilot program focused on assisting those who may be vulnerable to the process of radicalization towards violence. Shift BC is a completely voluntary and consent-based program designed to build a network of service and support around participants. Shift accomplishes this through a modified ‘Hub’ model; an evidence-based integrative approach to collaborative problem solving. Shift is dedicated to evidence-based operations conducted in a community-focused confidential and transparent manner to support people in the communities throughout British Columbia.
Violent Extremism is not limited to a single identifiable group, social class, religion, culture, race or ethnicity, gender identity, age group or worldview. Shift will continue to make it clear that the program is intended for individuals vulnerable to any manifestation of radicalization-to-violence and does not engage or target any specific group or demographic.
Brittany Davis is interested in the areas of public policy, risk management, and program development and her background in health psychology research from the University of British Columbia where she obtained her BA in Psychology.
