|Family and Domestic Violence Candlelight vigil.|
This is a ‘save the date’ for a Family and Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil to be held at 6.30pm in the forecourt of Parliament House in Darwin on Wednesday May 2. At that time, across Australia, people will gather to remember victims of Family and Domestic Violence. We invite you to join us in Darwin.
A poster for wide distribution will follow in the coming weeks, but the organising group made up of staff from Dawn House, Catherine Booth House, YWCA Domestic and Family Violence Centre, Darwin Aboriginal and Islander Women’s Shelter [DAIWS], NT Working Women’s Centre and the Domestic Violence Legal Service invite you to save the date.
v The vigil is a chance for all of us, as a community to stand up to violence, to name it and respond to it.
v It is a chance to let victims/ survivors, and their families, know that they are not invisible, forgotten and alone.
v It is a chance to remember and reflect on those whose lives have been marked by, or lost, to this violence.
We hope to see you there.Alex Richmond Community Educator
