National Victims of Crime Awareness Week 2012
Intended to generate public dialogue and shift the social norms that silence victims of domestic violence, the campaign will capitalize on the power of social media by blogging a new story each day of National Victims of Crime Week on our micro site http://facesofcourage.ca .
Each day starting April 22, please visit http://facesofcourage.ca to read their stories, share them with your social networks, and celebrate women’s acts of courage and change. National Victims of Crime Awareness Week 2012 will be launched in Ottawa on April 23, 2012 by the federal Ministers of Justice and Public Safety, when victims, victim advocates and representatives working in the area of victim issues will gather for the seventh annual Federal Symposium hosted by the Government of Canada.
