NEW GLASGOW – Pictou County Sexual Health Authority now has an official chapter of Silent Witness Nova Scotia.
Rayann Toner, Executive Director of the Pictou County Centre for Sexual Health (PCCSH) says the Silent Witness program is a way to honour women who have lost their lives to common-law, partner and spousal violence.
“We have had women in our county who have died at the hands of men's violence against women and Silent Witness helps us remember, respect and recognize those women as well as raise awareness and hopefully prevent future violence,” said Toner.
The initiative is community-based and the PCCSH welcomes anyone who has lost a mother, daughter, sister, friend, family member or any woman who has been a victim of men's violence against women, to take part.
The PCCSH is looking for like-minded community members to join their mission of honouring women who have lost their lives to partner, spouse, and common-law violence.
Those interested can join Audra Raulyns of Silent Witness Nova Scotia on March 5 at NSCC Stellarton in Room C210 at 3-5 p.m. or 7-9 p.m.
