GREAT FALLS — Due to Coronavirus concerns, No More Violence week is -- no more, at least for now.
For the past five years, Great Falls College MSU has hosted the week-long event to educate the public about violence prevention along with Partnering for Prevention.
Partnering for Prevention works to educate, raise awareness, increase involvement and disseminate resources to foster healing and prevent violence.
This year would have been the 6th annual NoMore Violence week was scheduled to take place from to March 30th April 3 and feature 3 national speakers.
Due to the event's high expected turnout, event chair Jamie Marshall said it was safer to postpone.
“We average 100 to 150 sometimes more than that at any of the given sessions. And so just that of concern for that larger group gathering in a confined space. And we were bringing people from different parts of the state and even the nation together,” Marshall said.
Marshall said while it will be difficult to reschedule all of the events from NoMore Violence Week, it’s likely Partnering for Prevention will be able to reschedule at least some of them.
“We are hopeful we will be able to do some of them once it’s safer to be out in public and having larger gatherings again,” Marshall said.
Marshall said they’ll keep the public updated on a future event date on their Facebook page.
