Council takes a stand against domestic violence

25/10/2019

Following the liquidation of White Ribbon Australia, Georges River Council has reaffirmed its commitment to combatting domestic violence by announcing its Say No to Domestic Violence Walk.
 
The event will see the Georges River community come together for the third time to walk 1.5 kilometres, from Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Kogarah, to Kogarah Town Square on Friday 22 November 2019.
 
Mayor of Georges River Council Kevin Greene is encouraging local residents to join the event so that together, the community can stand as a collective force against domestic violence.
 
“While the event can unfortunately no longer be associated with White Ribbon Australia, the Say No to Domestic Violence Walk will continue to be a positive influence for change locally,” said Mayor Greene.
 
“Each year we are proud to see strong community support for this important initiative, with an estimated 1,300 people attending the walk last year, and I’m confident that the 2019 walk will be no exception.
 
“I encourage all of our community members to come along, because it is with strength in numbers that we can demonstrate support for those affected by domestic violence, and help to fight this issue in our community.
 
The public are advised that there will be rolling road closures along the route to ensure participants’ safety for the duration of the walk.
Date: Friday 22 November 2019
Time: The walk will commence at 10.00am
Address: Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah
