The RMWB is inviting you to join in a walk on May 12th.
Victim Services is hosting this annual walk to raise awareness about the issues facing victims and survivors of crime in the region.
This year’s theme is “Power of Collaboration” and is also an opportunity to highlight the community groups and organizations who offer support to those in crisis including Some Other Solutions, Waypoints, St. Aidan’s Society, and the RCMP.
The Municipality says since 2019, there have been over 6,800 instances of personal crime in the region. This presents in many forms including assault with a weapon, sexual assault, uttering threats, and harassment.
The event starts at 11 a.m. at the memorial bench at Snye Park, with an Indigenous prayer, remarks from local officials, and personal stories shared by victims and survivors of crime.
The walk will then proceed along the Snye as a show of support for those impacted by acts of violence.
