Author Brian Vallee to Visit Province for Violence Prevention Month – February 12, 2009

In recognition of Violence Prevention Month, Brian Vallee, best-selling author of Life with Billy and War on Women, will be touring various regions of the province starting Sunday, February 15 in Stephenville.

Mr. Vallee will speak on the societal issue of violence against women through real-life stories and recommendations on what can be done to tackle this issue. The speaking engagements have been organized by several of the Violence Prevention Initiatives (VPI) regional coordinating committees and are open to all interested community members.

The VPI is the Provincial Government's $9.2-million strategy to raise awareness of violence, support victims and find long-term solutions to eliminate violence in Newfoundland and Labrador. One component of the initiative is a partnership with the 10 regional co-ordinating committees, which are established across the province to increase public awareness and accountability, opportunities for information sharing on best practices and improve delivery of violence prevention services.
