Multi-Faith Walk to End Family Violence

Step together. Stop abuse.

Sunday, September 26th, 2010
1:00 pm
Eau Claire Market
Calgary, Alberta

The Multi-Faith Walk to End Family Violence calls attention to the valuable and powerful role that people of faith have in ending violence in our families. Family violence knows no boundaries – it happens in all religious, social, cultural, economic and age groups.

By walking and talking together in the Multi-Faith Walk, individuals, families and faith communities declare their united commitment to ending violence and abuse in families. We invite members of all faith groups and persuasions to participate.
