This month is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month and the Women’s Resource Center’s Colleen Arnold says they have displays with information boards and purple ribbons around town and they’re focusing attention on the importance of taking an active role in identifying and dealing with abusive relationships. She explains break the silence is a multi-year campaign aimed at men which encourages them to speak out against verbal and physical violence towards women. She says the Flin Flon Bombers have teamed up with the Women’s Resource Center to tackle violence against women. Arnold says they help support and be role models in this campaign against domestic violence by stepping up and volunteering to help relay the message that this type of behavior is unacceptable under any circumstances and to be more than just a bystander.
