Women Abuse Prevention Month
On November 1, community members, including Chief Gary Conn, gathered at the Chatham-Kent Women’s Centre for a tree lighting ceremony to kick off Women Abuse Prevention Month.
November is dedicated to raising awareness to end violence against women.
People are encouraged to wear purple this month and illuminate their home with purple lights at night.
The colour purple is a symbol of courage and survival and has come to symbolize the fight to end woman abuse.
The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to encourage anyone in crisis to seek help.
A 24-hour crisis hotline is available at 519-354-6360 or 1-800-265-0598.
