Two years ago the Mayor Tara Veer along with the City of Red Deer proclaimed May 28th as the official day of “Respect”. This years Day of Respect fell on a Sunday and was again recognized by many supporters. As disrespect is one of the root causes of many social problems including bullying, harassment, violence and sexual assault our Centre hopes to help foster a culture of respect. Throughout our journey we have started the I Respect Campaign and are happy to announce this year we are continuing our efforts to promote respect with the social media hashtag #respectculture. Too often people speak of rape culture but an emphasis needs to be also placed on respect as a medium of prevention going forward. For more information on how to participate in our campaigns please contact our Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-340-1124.
