Some North Hastings residents will march through the streets of Bancroft to raise awareness about violence against women.
‘The March to Stop Violence Against Women’ is being held tomorrow, which is also the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Maggie’s Resource Centre Executive Director Tanya MacKinnon says domestic violence is an issue that can be seen in the North Hastings area.
Councillor Bill Kilpatrick says it’s important that both men and women take part in the march. Kilpatrick says those who take part will also be asked to fill out pledges that will carry on throughout the year.
This year’s ‘March to Stop Violence Against Women’ will start at Millennium Park at 4:30pm, before making its way to the Bancroft Village Playhouse. It will be followed by a community gathering, and a screening of a documentary about domestic violence.
