Posted Date: 11/1/2017

City of Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given and County of Grande Prairie Reeve Leanne Beaupre read a proclamation this morning, declaring November the Family Violence Prevention month. 

The proclamation supports a range of events happening in Grande Prairie as part of the province-wide initiative. 

“Violence in our community impacts people of all genders, races, backgrounds and socio-economic statuses,” says Mayor Bill Given. “The opportunity for our community to come together, recognize the impact of violence and speak up about wanting to make a change in the cycle is something that is really important and I’m happy that the City of Grande Prairie stands behind it.” 

Some of the local events taking place for Family Violence Prevention Month include;
Grande Prairie Storm game on November 3 at 7:30 p.m. 
#GoPurple day on November 15, whereby the public are encouraged to post selfies wearing purple.
Take Back the Night family-friendly march to end violence starting at 5 p.m. at the Muskoseepi Park Pavilion.
