Family Violence Prevention Awareness Event
Download to Calendar:
Time: 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
November is Family Violence Prevention Month. FCSS Beaumont invites you to join our Family Violence Prevention Awareness event, where we'll come together to spread awareness of the warning signs of family violence and promote the supports available in our community.
All Beaumont residents are strongly encouraged to attend.
What should I expect at the event?
- Impactful Presentations: You will hear from professionals in the field, including Beaumont FCSS, RCMP, Rise UP Society Alberta, and Leduc & District Victim Services. Their insights will provide you with valuable information on identifying family violence, seeking help, and supporting survivors.
- Clothesline Project: The Clothesline Project is a powerful symbol of strength and support. You'll have the opportunity to write a message on a purple shirt, which will then be hung on a clothesline outdoors. This visual display highlights the impact of violence and abuse, honours the resilience of survivors, and provides a beacon of hope for those presently facing violence.
- Purple Light Project: Participants will receive purple lights to illuminate their homes and communities in support of those affected by family violence.
- Food and Beverages: We will have a range of food and beverages available. From coffee and baked goods to charcuterie boards, there will be something for everyone to savor.
Join us on November 14 and be a part of the change we all wish to see. Together, we can build a safer, more supportive community for those experiencing family violence. RSVPs are encouraged, but drop-ins are welcome. Email FCSS@beaumont.ab.ca to register.
If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence, visit The City of Beaumont for anonymous assistance resources.
Sponsored by Beaumont FCSS, Beaumont RCMP, Rise Up Society Alberta, Leduc & District Victim Services, and the Beaumont Library.
