Family Violence Prevention Week–February 9th-15th:
Family violence can affect anyone, from any demographic: cultural, national and ethnic origin, socio-economic status, education, gender, age and physical or mental ability or school.
Family violence hurts. It can cause physical and psychological harm. Family violence violates the victim’s rights and freedoms.
Family violence harms the healthy development of children and youth.
Throughout the week teachers are invited to read stories about peace, love, kindness, healthy relationships.
-A reminder to wear purple tomorrow to support and care for families who experience violence, and to demonstrate that violence in any relationship is not acceptable. Donations to support PEI Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc., which is our Island-wide provider of services for abused women, would be greatly appreciated.
