Family violence incidents are increasing in Alberta amid COVID-19. Victims often need help and support from family and friends to get out of a dangerous situation.
Legal Aid is offering a free online information session for Albertans to learn how an emergency protection order can keep someone safe from an abuser. Hear from an expert panel of lawyers and ask questions.
The link to join the webinar will be sent via e-mail the day prior, on Tuesday, November 24.
Please note: This session aims to educate the public about Legal Aid services and is not intended as a forum to obtain legal advice.
November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – the first day of the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign (16 Days Campaign), which concludes on December 10 with International Human Rights Day.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, rates of gender-based violence have increased in Alberta and across the world, making this campaign especially important this year.
