Adeje to host ‘Miradas Violetas’, working to eradicate gender violence

 

The Domitila Hernández Association for Equality of Opportunities, with the help of Adeje council, has organised the first ‘Miradas Violetas; prevention as fundamental for the eradication of gender violence’ event which will see professionals from many different areas come together on Thursday, November 29th in the CDTCA in Adeje.

“This event will bring to a close the programme of events that been running this month in the lead up to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (November 25th)” said the Adeje councillor for equality Carmen Lucía Rodríguez del Toro, although, she added “we continue to work on a daily basis for the elimination of this form of violence, through different awareness-raising and community activities, assessments, individual sessions and early intervention, which is crucial in domestic violence situations, when we can offer specialised services in time”

She added, “in the fight against gender violence there are no truces nor cease-fires, and that’s whey we want to make society in general is active and aware of the matter, so that they can contribute and be a part of the solution, helping us detect vulnerable situations”.

The event, which runs from 9am to 8pm with a lunch-break, will see the participation of professionals and members of the public working in the field of prevention and action. It is geared for those involved in psychology, the law, sociology, social work, etc, as well as associations interested in the work being done in this area and individuals who feel they have something to contribute. It will be in Spanish (with sign language for those with hearing) and a creche for children of those attending (over 3 years old) from 4pm – 8pm.

If you are interested in taking part you can register on the council webpage, www.adeje.es, where you will also find more details about the talks and workshops on offer throughout the day.
