November Declared Family Violence Prevention Month
Our government has partnered with the Fergusson Foundation to declare November as Family Violence Prevention Month. This month recognizes the impact that family violence has on individuals, families, workplaces and communities and aims to increase awareness of the resources and supports available to build healthier relationships in our communities.
Family violence continues to affect the lives of many New Brunswickers. Violence does not belong in our homes or in our relationships. Eliminating family violence is not a task for one government, one community, one organization or one individual. Together, we must continue to promote education and awareness programs of family violence to ensure that the people we care most about have a safe place to live.
