Prevention of Violence Against Women Week April 18 - April 25, 2010 - Vancouver events

Urban Women's Anti-Violence Strategy has reconvened for Prevention of Violence Against Women Week April 18 - April 25, 2010 to host Death Does Not Become Her - Pre-Mortem Initiatives.

In 2009, Urban Women's Anti-Violence Strategy held events on Main Street in Vancouver to standing room only crowds confirming the essential and critical services women's organizations provide in British Columbia.

In 2010, the location is Commercial Drive and the events are even more compelling and pressing.
