This month is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The Women’s Resource Center’s Colleen Arnold says they have displays with information and purple ribbons around Flin Flon and Creighton. She explains wearing the purple ribbon shows your support to end violence against women adding they also have white ribbons that show the recognition of men’s efforts to end violence against women. She says they’re hoping that people will speak up either for themselves or for someone that they know and care about that those people might get the help that’s available. She also reminds you that November 25th will be their annual Take Back the Night and December 6th will be their Candle Vigil and also remember through unity we can prevent and reduce family violence.
Arnold asks you to show support to send a strong message that there’s no place for domestic violence in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces or schools.
