Sexual Violence Awareness Month

April is Sexual Violence Awareness Month in Manitoba. The Winnipeg Safe City Initiative and its stakeholders are committed to raising public awareness of sexual violence and fostering a culture of consent. We know that reducing and preventing sexual violence must involve everyone in our communities. We recognize the importance of our male allies who stand up against sexual violence and lead by example.

Honourable Rochelle Squires, Manitoba's Minister responsible for the Status of Women, calls on all Manitobans to support support survivors of sexual violence and to think critically about how we can work to create a culture of consent
