Hearts in the Park is a community effort by Circle Project, Regina Police Service, U of S College of Nursing – Regina Campus, and SOFIA House with support from the Department of Justice Canada. The event is being held during National Victims and Survivors of Crime Week and is focused on raising awareness of the impacts of violence.
The theme of the event is “It takes HEART to talk about it” and our goal is to raise awareness about the issue of violence in our community. We believe we need to let others know it’s okay to talk openly about violence, share how it affects all of us, and break the stigma.
The event is an opportunity for people to: learn about how to access resources (for victims and perpetrators); learn how to recognize the signs of violence; and understand the cycle of violence.
We hope you will join us in Victoria Park on May 31st from 11:00am – 1:00pm to learn more and sign hearts with the relationship of people you know that have been affected by violence.
