As we look back on National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, we would like to say a huge “thank you!” to everyone who helped make Faces of Courage such a huge success. We were overwhelmed by the encouragement and appreciation we received. You offered your time, work, and words to this project, and it couldn’t have been done without you.
The Surrey Leader has put the spotlight on our Faces of Courage: Voices for Change project. In her piece, writer Sheila Reynolds delves in to Patricia’s story and finds hope, strength and resiliency. Patricia herself found freedom from violence, and by speaking out she helped to protect others as well.
