November is Family Violence Prevention Month
The Silent Witness Project is a traveling exhibit of life-size red wooden silhouettes. Each represents a New Brunswick woman who was murdered by a husband, partner or acquaintance. Each figure bears the name of a woman who once lived and worked among us. Through research and information sharing, it is hoped that eventually there will be a silhouette crafted to honour every New Brunswick woman who has died tragically as the result of domestic violence.
On Monday November 21,2005 there will be a dedication ceremony for the Silhouette constructed for Maria Tanasichuk. This will take place from 10 am – 12 pm at the Miramichi Regional Health Authority – Highland Theatre. ALSO from 1 pm – 3 pm, there will be a presentation by Kim Cuppens addressing the link between Family Violence and Animal Abuse.
Donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds going towards the Pleasant Valley Farm for Abused Animals. Your support in attending both these events would be greatly appreciated. Brought to you by the
