Grade 10 student Janelle L’Hurux says she participated because she wants to raise awareness on how serious abuse is.

"I got invovolved in it, because this is one of the things I really like to protest for.  I have been in similar situations , and I just find it to be a really strong thing for me because I really want to stop it." L’Hurux says.

She says the entire school participated in the event. Students marched from the North Peace Secondary School to the Totem Mall, waving signs with anti-domestic violence slogans.

L’Hurux says the only way to put an end to the abuse is to be vocal and to stand up to it.
