The public and media are welcome to attend as Halton Violence Prevention Council hangs it’s “Act Against Violence” banners throughout the Region for the month of November.

The Council’s mission is to end violence against women and their children in our community. It is a coordinating committee which works towards improving services for women and children experiencing abuse, in order to achieve a healthy Halton community.
