ORIHUELA is against gender violence.
That’s the message from the town hall as the Councillor for Equality announces a range of events to mark International Day Against Violence Against Women on November 25. Banners will be placed across the municipality with the aim of raising and maintaining awareness against gender violence, with one already up at the town hall. In addition, a group of citizens are attending the ‘March Against Violence’ in Madrid on Saturday November 7.
A prevention campaign has also been launched with various workshops taking place in schools throughout the municipality. A sewing project for the promotion and training of women, and men, organised by the municipality in collaboration with the Recycling Organisation of Alicante, is also being launched and will run until June 2016.
