Roll out the red carpet, because this is your glimpse into Surrey Women's Centre at Hollywood North for National Victims of Crime Awareness Week 2015.
As a support worker, I’ve sat across from myself many times at the hospital. I remember my own story, and how I’ve helped other women share theirs.
My job as a Fund Developer for Surrey Women's Centre is to open the conversation around violence against women. I find myself talking nonstop about it to my friends and family. They may start off with surprise and disbelief, along with the familiar string of questions, but after a while, an interesting phenomena happens: they start opening up to me about gendered issues that they face in their everyday lives.
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.

Too many women who are experiencing violence are suffering in silence – and we can all do something about it. This morning the Ministry of Children and Family Development released #saysomething, a new radio and social media campaign that aims to end the silence around domestic violence.
