They Came to Stand Against Violence.

A large group of supporters joined the Women’s Resource Centre for Take Back the Night in Pioneer Square Friday evening.  The group left Pioneer Square and marched down Main Street, Angel Avenue, Hapnot Street and back to Pioneer Square where the Centre’s Madison McIntyre told them Take Back the Night is an event designed to bring visibility and exposure to the impact of violence in women’s lives……

 

“Violence against women does not just impact one individual, it impacts an entire community.  We are gathered here today because we all have one thing in common and that one thing we have in common is we believe.  We believe in a world where violence against women and children does not exist and we are willing to fight for it.  Accepting violence against women is not an option and we will not allow for it to continue.  We are not just here to claim one night we are here to claim every night.  Most importantly we are here to demand change.”

 

The group paused to remember six local area women who lost their lives to gender based and domestic violence.
