The Diputación de Almería has kicked off the week of activities being held on the occasion of 25N with the installation of the ‘Red Bench’. A project to which the Provincial Institution has adhered in terms of prevention for the reduction of gender violence. This act shows the commitment of the Provincial Council in the implementation of programmes that establish common objectives with other institutions to eradicate and implement mechanisms against gender violence.
The event, held inside the Special Delegation for Equality and Family, located in Calle Marín, was attended by the Deputy for Equality, Carmen Belén López Zapata, as well as members of the CAI. The women of the Immediate Attention Centre (CAI) have been the protagonists in a painting workshop in which they gave colour, among other activities, to the bench that today remembers the murdered Almerian women.
The Deputy for Equality and Family, Carmen Belén López, stressed the importance of celebrating 25N: “The campaign ‘Almería united against gender violence’ is a sign of the union between institutions in the search for real equality between men and women, and also pursues the goal that the province will one day be free of gender violence.
On the other hand, the provincial deputy described the fifteen or so activities that the Provincial Institution will be carrying out: “15 intense days are beginning in which activities will be carried out for the whole of society and throughout the province. The Provincial Council, Town Councils and associations are committed to the fight against this scourge and that is why we will continue to work together. This year we are breaking records for activities to commemorate one of the most important days in our history”.
The Provincial Council, together with the other Andalusian councils, is going to carry out fifteen activities, both in person and online, with the aim of reaching the maximum number of people. The activities include
