A new poster campaign to end violence against aboriginal women and girls was launched at the Legislative Building today by community stakeholders and the province.

The five posters feature everyday aboriginal men who are taking a stand against domestic violence. The posters will be placed in schools, community centres and other locations throughout Manitoba.

The campaign, which will also have a social media component, represents the next phase in Manitoba’s multi-year domestic violence prevention strategy.

The hope is the campaign will lead to a discussion of and create awareness of aboriginal men reclaiming their traditional role of supporting and honouring aboriginal women.

The province’s domestic violence prevention strategy was launched Nov. 5, 2012, and is focused on providing supports for victims and families, interventions for people and prevention of abusive behaviour.

The campaign builds on the Break the Silence on Violence Against Women initiative developed in partnership with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
