Posted on 02/06/2019
The 10th annual Walk in Silence for Victims of Family Violence will take place in Charlottetown on Wednesday, February 13, from 12 p.m. (noon) until approximately 12:30 p.m., with a reception to follow at City Hall, 199 Queen Street.

The Walk in Silence for Victims of Family Violence is a symbolic gesture to give a voice to family violence victims who may remain silent out of fear or other reasons. The walk brings together Islanders and representatives from many interested groups and professions to show their commitment and support for Island families by working to prevent family violence.

The silent walk will begin at the Coles Building at 175 Richmond Street at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, February 13 and end with the reception at City Hall at approximately 12:30 p.m. The event is free and all are welcome to attend.

The bell tower of City Hall will be lit purple for the week in honour of Family Violence Prevention Week.
