"Some acts that - assured the mayor - will continue throughout the month under the motto Do you need help? Count on all."
During the press conference, Casado referred to the alarming data collected that indicate that from March to October there have been a total of 173 women users who have attended the Center for Specialized Assistance to Victims of Gender Violence, which is why they are fundamental all these actions.
Thus, among the most symbolic actions, the installation of three traffic signs with a broken heart shape and the slogan "Nonviolent violence" stands out.
The objective is to sensitize the population and raise public awareness about the need to eradicate gender violence.
It is for this reason that an element such as a traffic signal has been chosen, which makes it easier to launch the message in a visual way.
In addition, when placed in public places they become very suitable elements to manifest an active position against gender violence.
The action will be completed with the installation of some plates with this same legend in the different municipal buildings and with the distribution of stickers so that they can be placed in the establishments that want it.
