In times of stress and community crisis, it is common for instances of domestic violence to rise. Real Talk is a guide to help us understand and talk about domestic violence in Alberta. Learning how to talk about domestic violence isn’t fancy or complicated. Real Talk is just a real moment between two people, it isn’t about trying to fix things, it's about empowering change and bringing people together. The Real Talk campaign is about all Albertans getting real and confronting domestic violence in our communities.
Real Talk is about:
Recognizing domestic violence,
Empathizing with the person impacted by the violence,
Asking them what they need, and
Listening without judgement.
It’s time to get real.
