Banding together against violence
2 February 2017 - 25 November 2017
My event is focused firstly on the White Ribbon School Program – Breaking the Silence. Raising awareness of domestic violence and how to Stand up and Speak out safely. Engaging both primary and secondary school students and teachers in my region.
The event will be held during the 10 days of activism. The students and teachers will be making care wrist bands from the end of January till end October.
All materials will be provided by donation and local community organisation’s provided free to all participating school with options for all age groups. The care bands will be sold on the day of the event as well as gold coin donations for light refreshments and delicious baked goods.
The event will donate the money raised at my event supports White Ribbon’s prevention work in schools, workplaces and the wider community. Together let’s help create a future free from violence. Some proceeds will also be raised for our local escape fund for women and children escaping violence.
