Crisis Pregnancy Centre Targeted
Vancouver, BC. August 2, 2018 — On Monday July 30, a Crisis Pregnancy Centre in Vancouver was vandalized, incurring thousands of dollars of damage. Vandals pitched blood-like red paint on all our windows, doors, signage, and the sidewalk entrance. Offensive language was also scribbled in red paint.
The Vancouver Police Department is viewing this specific targeting of our charity as a “hate crime”.
Over the years, our 100% non-political charity has been subject to harassment, but usually not of such a physically violent nature.
We are heartened by kind, supportive words of encouragement from our neighbouring community. On Monday, passersby wanted to help clean up. On Tuesday, a graffiti removal company power-washed our exterior – at no charge, as the company also views the vandalism as a hate crime. We are very grateful for the genuine friendship and practical assistance.
Love is the foundation and the heart of our charity, and we stand against hate in all its forms. The Crisis Pregnancy Centre of Vancouver will continue to faithfully serve all our clients even in face of this harassment.
