St George Football Association  are calling for the football community in the St George Area to promote awareness on domestic violence

Georges River Council, along with the support of local domestic violence support services and the St George Police Area Command, is planning a local community awareness campaign on Friday 22 November 2019.

Following the significant contribution of the community to the success of the inaugural Georges River Council White Ribbon Walk event, Council is again inviting you to take part in our community awareness campaign at the 2019 Say No To Domestic Violence Walk to prevent the incidence of domestic violence in the community:


Georges River Council Say No To Domestic Violence Walk
2019

Date:               Friday 22 November 2019

Time:              10:00 am -12 noon

Where:            Netstrata Jubilee Stadium GATE A (Jubilee Ave – Opposite Carlton South Public School) to Kogarah Town Square

What:              A one-way 1.5km walk from Jubilee Stadium, to Kogarah Town Square

Why get involved:

  • On average, one woman is killed every week at the hands of a current or former partner. One in three women has been a victim of physical or sexual violence, since the age of 15, from someone known to them. One in four young people are prepared to excuse violence from a partner.
  • This is a cycle of violence, which starts with disrespect. It starts with the attitudes and behaviours that are dismissed by adults. Children form their beliefs from the world around them – what they hear, see and talk about. Sometimes, without meaning to, we ignore disrespectful behaviour, or prefer not to get involved.
  • Further information and resources about domestic violence can be found at www.1800respect.org.au

 

Say No To Domestic Violence and take part in this significant step towards eliminating domestic violence in our community.
