A Message of Hope and Better Times

There is no place on earth where women are safe from violence against them. It’s prevalent in every society in the world. Our society is not immune to this plight as Alberta has one of the highest rates of domestic abuse in the country. That means 1 in every 4 women in Calgary has been subjected to physical violence by an intimate partner.

What would our city without domestic violence look like? It might be utopian thinking, but we need to dream— as it is possible. Our horse represents a world without domestic violence. Each detail symbolizes the experience our women and children go through, as they have a fresh new start, a life free from violence.

Blue Skies— the hope of better things, the storm has passed
Red Roses — Red is the colour of true love, passion, life force
Transition in the Horse Colour— Accepting transitions and changes as a positive force
Gold—Life is precious. We are worthy of precious things
Gold Foiled Pattern Leaves— New growth

By joining us to help women and children who are fleeing domestic violence, you have the power to help eradicate violence in our city. Our programs give women the tools to help break the cycle of abuse. If you commit, it can be done.
