This month is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The Women’s Resource Center’s Colleen Arnold says they have displays with information boards and purple ribbons around Flin Flon and Creighton and they’re doing presentations in the schools and to various community groups to draw attention to violence. She explains domestic violence is not a one time event, it’s an escalation of violence that needs to be stopped before it reaches a danger point. She says no one deserves to live through an oppressed cycle of violence, people should be able to live freely and relationships are about loving each other not making the other persons life miserable. Arnold adds the effects of domestic violence can be long lasting so they encourage all citizens to join the purple ribbon campaign that’s now underway. She asks you to show support and awareness by wearing a purple ribbon to send a strong message that there’s no place for domestic violence in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces or schools.
