The Delta Opposes Violence Everywhere Committee (DOVE) is comprised of members from various community service agencies within Delta, whose focus is the prevention of relationship violence through Education. The DOVE committee’s objective is to increase public awareness surrounding violence in relationships and the committee’s coordinated efforts work toward reducing any gaps in services that may exist in the Delta area.
Upcoming Public Service Events
The Delta Opposed Violence Everywhere (DOVE) Committee teams up with the BC Lions to bring the Be More Than A Bystander Program to NDSS on Feb 13th. A groundbreaking program that sees sports icons from the BC Lions using their status and public profile to create awareness and urge everyone to break the silence on violence and promote healthy relationships and healthy communities. It emphasizes the role everyone can play.
For information about DOVE upcoming events, call Jill Colley 604.940.5019 or Audrey Best at 604.948.5536 for more information.
