LET’S END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VIGIL – remembering those who have died
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Let’s stand together and put an end to Domestic Violence.
On the eve of International Elimination of Violence Against Women Day, 25th November, Hope+Heal will be holding our 6th annual vigil, to honour the lives of women and their children who have been killed by domestic homicide.
We will have speakers, read the names of the victims who have died and conclude with a meditation.
Please join us in person on Friday 24th November at 4pm at Customs House Forecourt, Circular Quay, to remember those who’ve died.
