Surrey took a stance against domestic violence Tuesday with the third annual Rakhi Project.
Rakhi is a traditional Indian ceremony honouring the relationship between brothers and sisters and involves the tying of a Rakhi bracelet by a sister on her brother’s wrist as a symbol of love and respect.
Men wearing the purple bracelets as a symbol of their opposition against violence against women.
Bracelets are $5 and are available until Aug. 21 at Surrey City Hall, select Save-on-Foods locations, Fruiticana, DIVERSEcity, Surrey RCMP, Kwantlen Polytechnic University bookstores, KEYS: Housing & Health Solutions, and Surrey Women’s Centre.
Proceeds are going to the City of Surrey’s Coalition Against Domestic Abuse.
