Delta’s DOVE committee to hold events to raise public awareness around violence against women

Events held in advance of National day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women on Dec. 6

On Dec. 2 and 3, DOVE (Delta Opposes Violence Everywhere) will be hosting events to bring awarness about women affected by violence.

The events come in advance of the national Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, held annually on Dec. 6. The day remembers the 14 women killed at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique in 1989.

In Delta, DOVE and the Delta Police will be holding two events to provide information, resources and education on the topic of violence against women.

In a press release, DOVE said that “violence in all relationships has to stop and the way to achieve this is to educate people about the reality and scope of this problem and how they can help to prevent further violence.”

The North Delta session will be held on Dec. 2 at the Sungod Recreation Centre from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The South Delta session will be held on Dec. 3 at Tsawwassen Mills Mall, at Entry Six near Bass Pro Shop, from noon to 3 p.m. Caber, the police victim services dog, will also be on site with staff.
