Have you heard about the shadow pandemic of family violence? The global research linking pandemics and rising family violence is very clear.
Right now in Canada
- 1 in 3 Canadians is concerned about stress in the home due to isolation
- 1 in 10 women is very or extremely concerned about violence in the home
Accolade Communications is very proud to work with a coalition of 13+ agencies and municipalities in the #KeepFamiliesSafe family violence prevention campaign in Waterloo Region.
While there is ample evidence that family violence is increasing – literally in our backyards, in our community and in our workplaces, there is also ample evidence that shows small gestures matter a lot.
