On behalf of all the emergency services and domestic violence workers, I would like to invite the community of the Southern Tablelands to the White Ribbon Day March, which will be held next Friday.
White Ribbon Day is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and is held annually on November 25. It is symbolised by a white ribbon.
It is Australia’s only national, male-led campaign to end men’s violence against women.The White Ribbon vision is for women to live safely free from all forms of men’s violence. Its mission is to make women’s safety a man’s issue, too.
The campaign works mostly through prevention initiatives involving awareness across the broader community.
The Goulburn White Ribbon Day march will bring that awareness to the community with a number of community groups coming together, showing their support and pledges to the White Ribbon cause to eliminate violence against women.
Marchers are asked to congregate at the corner of Verner and Auburn streets on November 25 at 11am to proceed to Belmore Park.
Speakers in the park will include White Ribbon ambassador Daniel Strickland (Mission Australia) and a Hume LAC officer.A barbecue for marcherswill follow.
We need all men to stand up and be heard on this very important and serious community issue.
Whether you can attend the march or not, I urge you to wear a white ribbon next week and spread the word:that violence against women in any form is not acceptable.
I will start the ball rolling by taking the White Ribbon Day Oath today:
“I will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women. This is my oath. “I urge all sporting clubs and community groups to consider making one of their events or rounds dedicated to this important cause and having all men in attendance take the oath.
