RCMP was in full support of the “Take Back The Night March” in Rigolet.
According to a press release, on September 28, residents of Rigolet came together as one group to demonstrate a united front on violence against women.
The march got under way at 7pm at the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development (DHSD) office.
The walk took the participants through several town streets and then back to the DHSD office.
The weather was cool and wet, but it didn’t dampen the marcher’s spirit.
The Rigolet RCMP accepted an invitation from local organizers to participate in the march.
They provided a vehicle escort to ensure the safety of the participants.
The evening wrapped up with a post-march reception that included refreshments and materials regarding programs and resources available to persons experiencing violence.
Included in the information was the recently opened Kirkina House.
The Kirkina House is a shelter for women and children in Rigolet.
