Policy & Advocacy: Health Awareness / Nursing Leadership
NNPBC would like to highlight very important work that is going on with Public Health Association of BC (PHABC), one of our community partners. PHABC has been part of the Prevention of Violence in Canada for more than decade and has served as a coalition leader.
Canada currently spends $22 billion on policing, courts and prisons, the country has the highest annual homicide rate per capita of G7 countries, after the USA and homicide rates for Indigenous peoples are 6 times higher than for non-Indigenous.
PHABC has drafted a violence prevention charter please take time to sign in support of ending violence in BC.
NNPBC advocates for a world of equity and equality where violence is eliminated for all Canadians.
Go to www.povc.ca
and sign the charter! Your voice matters! It will help PHABC to continue their efforts to build a Canada Free of Violence.
