Responding to Femicide Community Forum

February 16 @ 11:00 13:00 Smiths Falls, Ontario

Lanark County Interval House and Community Support in partnership with the Smiths Falls Police Service, Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation and Victim Services Lanark County welcomes you to join us for an informational forum addressing the concerns of our community around domestic violence, sexual assault and femicide. The event will take place virtually on Wednesday, February 16th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This forum is an opportunity to share information about local resources, tools to support the community in healing and to learn how and why to reach out if you are concerned about safety and violence. It is important to come together because of the recent tragic loss in the Smiths Falls community. This is an open forum; discussion is encouraged and feedback on how we can help the community to heal and feel empowered to reach out is appreciated.

This forum will not be a discussion of the recent femicide in Smiths Falls. This is an opportunity for learning and healing as a community.

All are welcome! Register here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/…/responding-to-femicide-a…
