AGM on June 26 at 7 pm at 7 Mellor Ave (Halifax Regional Police Burnside location)

Since 1990 more than 80 Nova Scotia women have lost their lives due to violence. For 36 women, their deaths came at the hands of their intimate partners, forever silencing their voices. The time has come to end their silence. Silent Witness Nova Scotia is a group of organizations and individuals working together to raise these voices.

Through community involvement and support, free standing, life-size, red, wooden silhouettes, each one bearing the name of a woman whose life ended violently as a result of domestic violence, are created. Because these women no longer have a voice the silhouettes are called Silent Witnesses.

Giving voice to Nova Scotian women silenced by violence.
