YWCA of Canada 5th Annual "Week Without Violence"

This significant international anti-violence initiative includes conferences, events and grassroots activities organized by 42 YWCA and YM/YWCAs operating in over 200 communities across Canada. The first day of the Week Without Violence, October 15th, is auspiciously marked by the World March of Women in Ottawa, in which the YWCA of/du Canada is participating. The 'Week' addresses numerous forms of violence, including youth violence, child abuse, domestic violence and racism by devoting a different theme to each day.



For information on activities in local communities, please contact local YWCAs. The YWCA has a "Week Without Violence" Web site, http://www.7wv.com which will be updated periodically as the campaign proceeds.
