On Monday, November 25, a briefing dedicated to the campaign "16 Days Against Violence" will be held at the press center of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration (Narodna Square, 4, II floor).

The beginning is at 10.00.

The participants of the briefing will tell about the measures taken to implement the legislation in the field of preventing and combating domestic violence, the role of the police in preventing and combating domestic violence, and the plan of holding the campaign "16 Days Against Violence":

Mykhailo Petrishka - the Director of the Department of Social Welfare of the Regional State Administration;

The All-Ukrainian Action "16 Days Against Violence", which has been supported by the international community since 1991, is held in Ukraine every year, from November 25 to December 10. Thousands of citizens and hundreds of governmental and non-governmental organizations from more than 100 countries step up their efforts for a common cause: to increase awareness of forms of violence, to create a violence-free social space in a particular region.

This day was officially announced by the UN General Assembly in 1999, but it has been commemorated since 1981 in memory of the tragic death of three Mirabal sisters who were brutally murdered during the dictatorship of Dominican ruler Rafael Trujillo in 1960.
