The Kingston Anti-Violence Advisory Council is hosting a speakers event in an effort to grow its volunteers who are committed to eradicate violence against women.
Working with survivor engagement, the council gives presentations, appears at public events and works to improve services for women who have been affected by violence. The council is looking for survivors of domestic violence to share their stories in order to help others.
“The benefits of joining are that they would have a voice, would be able to help and would be doing something for their community, which also promotes healing,” Jean Quinn, chair of the council, said in an email to the Whig-Standard
To showcase its work, the council is hosting an event on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kingston Police Headquarters at 705 Division St. The day will include multiple speakers, including Nneka MacGregor, executive director of the Women’s Centre for Social Justice.
