November is Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta and we will be celebrating remarkable Albertans who have dedicated their time and energy to help families, friends, neighbours, co-workers and other community members impacted by family violence.
Do you know someone who has stepped up in your community to contribute to family violence prevention?
Nominate them for an Alberta Inspiration Award. Let them know their efforts are appreciated and their contributions are critical to the reduction of family violence in our province.
Awards are given to up to three recipients in each of the categories of youth, adults, seniors, groups/organizations, government and businesses to honour their leadership. One individual may also receive a Lifetime Achievement Award to acknowledge a long-term commitment to ending family violence in Alberta.
