November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. Family Violence Prevention Month started in 1986 as a local initiative in the town of Hinton, Alberta where concerned residents launched a family violence education and prevention campaign. This grassroots effort inspired the Alberta Legislature to support family violence prevention as an ongoing provincial initiative, resulting in the inception of Family Violence Prevention Month. Today, hundreds of Alberta communities and thousands of individuals are actively involved in preventing family violence through education and service provision.

November was Family Violence Prevention Month. With the help of some great men in our community, we put together a radio announcement that was aired on 106.1 The Goat during the month of November. A big Thank-You to all who helped put the announcement together and recorded messages. We appreciate all your support in raising awareness regarding the issue of Family Violence in our community!
