Each year, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, we gather to honour the lives of women and their children who have been tragically murdered in domestic violence homicides.
We are extending a special invitation for you to support us with this event and remember those who have been murdered in the past 12 months.
The 2022 Vigil is to be held on November 25 starting at 4pm at Customs House, Circular Quay.
We would love for you to join us and show your support in condemning abuse and violence and showing support for change in society's behaviour and the government’s actions. Calling on change, because #enoughisenough.
