On the occasion, she stressed that “the regional campaign against domestic violence began on November 25, following its public presentation. On that date, a video spot featuring an inclusive approach began to be disseminated on social networks, namely through Facebook and Youtube."
“The campaign image was also disseminated through social networks in November 2019 on the profiles of the institutions that make up the Networks and Centre for the Prevention and Combat to Domestic Violence, being also shared by other institutions and even on personal profiles,” added the government official. In this regard, she stressed that the initiative included “the design of 8x3 and 4x3 billboards to be displayed throughout the Region."

"The Regional Government has made a clear commitment to focus on prevention and disseminate the resources available in the Region, emphasising the message that the fight against domestic violence depends on each and every one of us and that the support to the domestic violence victims remains in place," said the government official.
