Family Violence Prevention Month
November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. Family Violence Prevention
Month started in 1986 as a local initiative in the town of Hinton where four remarkable
Albertans, Katherine Kennedy, Sonja Bennett, Faye Wheeler and Glenda Carter, formed
The Hinton Society for the Prevention of Family Violence and launched Alberta’s very
first family violence education and prevention campaign.
Throughout the month of November CIWA will host several Go Purple events!
It takes all of us working together to promote healthy relationships and safe
communities in our province.
#GoPurpleAB in November!
