On October 9, 2021, PRAAC said goodbye to one of our founding committee members, Kelly Johnston. Taken from us way too early in his life, his legacy will forever be remembered. Kelly was one of the caring community members, who in 2008 helped form PRAAC. His dedication to making sure relationship abuse programming was locally available in our community was relentless. We can still hear Kelly's words during our meetings about his commitment to the program as he wanted to break to circle of violence. In 2013, Kelly was recognized by the Alberta Government winning an Inspiration Award for his work in our community fighting against relationship abuse. Shortly after, Kelly's health caused him to step away from the active work of PRAAC, but the framework he helped establish, continues on to this day. May you rest in peace Kelly. Memory eternal!
