The fifth annual Walk In Silence for Victims of Domestic Violence will take place on Wednesday, February 12, followed by a reception at Charlottetown City Hall. Should the event be postponed due to poor weather conditions, the walk and reception will take place on Thursday, February 13.
Participants are asked to gather at Province House at noon on Wednesday and walk to City Hall on Queen Street where a reception will be held in the second floor Parkdale Room. The two events will help mark Family Violence Prevention Week, which is from February 11 to 15.
The walk and reception are designed to raise awareness about family violence and make a symbolic gesture to family violence victims that they are not alone – help and support is available. For the event, participants are encouraged to wear purple to support the Purple Ribbon Campaign Against Violence.
