Annual Peace Begins at Home Campaign – April 8 to 19, 2019 – Help End Family Violence

Peace begins at home…it’s an idea that many of us hold dear.

 But for many women, children, elders and families in our community – it just isn’t the case.

 For too many, home is not a place of safety, security and sanctuary, it is a place where family members or intimate partners use violence and coercion to maintain power and control.

 That’s why the Comox Valley Transition Society and a host of community partners come together annually for the “Peace Begins at Home” Purple Ribbon Campaign.
