The second week of the National Caravan started off with the event organized in Galați, in the conference room of Parcul pentru Tehnologia Informației.
Representatives of the public institutions in Galați and Tecuci, with attributions in the field of domestic violence prevention, members of the civil society, and the local press participated in the event.
Necuvinte Association was joined by the Galați County Police Inspectorate represented by Mrs. Andreea Delia Rogojină, Police Inspector—Spokeswoman, and Mr. Tiberiu Ciurea, Police Assistant Inspector, Police Patrol Department, who ensured the participants that the prevention and fight against domestic violence represents a priority for 2017, at the level of Galați CPI.
The screening of the documentary which was filmed at the Women Penitentiary in Târgșor was followed by a debate on the ways in which we can fight against and prevent domestic violence together—institutions, civil society, and citizens. There were also various discussions about educating the generations to come, the preparation of a legal framework that would be harsher to the assailants, as well as about the change in mentalities for us all.
Since the emergency protection order came into effect, a great rise in the requests regarding the issuance of a protection order, as well as of the issued protection orders was recorded at the level of the county of Galați, the county placing first, at a national level, in this field, which brings us joy and makes us believe that the citizens of Galați county are very well informed and trust the Romanian justice system.
We thank Galați Townhall, which offered us the opportunity to hold this event in Parcul pentru Tehnologia Informației, and our local partners, the Galați County Police Inspectorate.
The “Broken Wings” Caravan is part of the national campaign for domestic violence prevention with the same name, created by Necuvinte Association in partnership with the Romanian Police, and financed by Kaufland România.
