WHEN

November is Family Violence Prevention Month in the City of Edmonton, and November 25 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the start of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

WHY

Edmonton, and Alberta as a whole, has been plagued by extreme rates of domestic violence severely affecting families, workplaces, and communities. The majority of the most severe forms of this violence has been perpetrated by men against women. It is time to explore what this means for our city and province and what can be done to improve the situation at the level of primary prevention (addressing root causes) and interventions aimed at engaging men and boys in domestic violence prevention. Engaging men and boys in domestic violence prevention has been labelled as a priority by the provincial and municipal governments in working towards healthy and safe communities. This event will bring together community and service providers to catalyze discussions around engaging men and boys in Edmonton.
