An international day aimed at ending violence against women will be marked in  Flintshire by Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant and domestic abuse support workers.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl will join forces with staff from the Flintshire Domestic Abuse Safety Unit (DASU) to raise awareness of White Ribbon Day, which takes place on Tuesday, November 25. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Last year’s White Ribbon event, which saw us tie white ribbons to a large oak tree in the same spot, went really well. Lots of people saw the display and asked questions, which was really good. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This year I will be in Cardiff on ministerial duties on White Ribbon Day itself. I wanted to arrange an event beforehand to raise awareness of the day, in the hope more people would get involved in the campaign by supporting a local event, or organising one of their own.”
