DoCS, SAPS leads early morning awareness drive at Cape Town Station
Tomorrow, 5 December 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, and the South African Police Service (SAPS) will take the 16 Days of Activism campaign for No Violence Against Women and Children, to the Cape Town Station, raising awareness about abuse and engaging with commuters on their morning commute.
Through meaningful partnerships, like the partnership between the SAPS, the Department of Community Safety in the Western Cape and the public, we are uniting behind the theme: “Safety starts in the family”.
The activities during the 16 Days of Activism campaign are centred on empowering communities with the knowledge, the opportunity and the capacity to take a stand against abuse and encourage them through key motivators to break the cycle of abuse.
We, as a collective, challenge every person in the province to ensure that Safety starts in the family and observe 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children towards 365 days of action to eradicate violence from our communities, Better Together.
There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews.
Note: All media are invited to attend.
