One Billion Rising Awareness Day
The PCC's Champion for tackling Violence against Women and Children will be attending the One Billion Rising Awareness Day on Saturday, April 27.
By holding a free community event in East Bristol they hope to reach those who are at risk of experiencing, or know someone who is experiencing gender violence and provide information on their human rights and the support services that are available to them.
By creating a positive, supportive and informative environment, it is hoped that those affected by gender violence will feel enabled and empowered to access the support available to them/to make a positive move to seek help.
The event is open to all.
