We’re raising awareness about   White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day – White Ribbon is a male-led campaign that seeks to change the attitudes and behaviours that lead to and perpetuate violence against women. White Ribbon believes that most men are good and that good men abhor such violence.

Why is the work of White Ribbon important?

  • 1 woman is killed every week by a current or former partner.
  • 1 in 3 women over the age of 15 report physical or sexual violence at some time in their lives.
  • Domestic and family violence is the major cause of homelessness for women and their children, and a recognised form of child abuse.
  • In 2009 it was estimated that violence against women and their children cost the Australian economy $13.6 billion annually.
  • White Ribbon works to stop this insidious violence.

It is up to men to speak up and step in when they witness violence against women, and it is up to men to condemn the indefensible actions of the few and assert the will of the many.

But above all, White Ribbon must engage men because the victims are not merely statistics in a report; they are their wives, sisters, mothers, daughters and friends.

There will also be an event held in Crown Street Mall on Saturday 24th November 12pm to 1.30pm – come and sign the oath! See flyer below attached.

List of key CALD and community contacts in the LGA

The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN) is conducting a state-wide portable pool safety campaign “Kids Can Drown Without a Sound” targeting English and non-English speaking community groups. The campaign was developed after experts were concerned with the number of children experiencing drowning and near drowning incidents in portable swimming pools.

A poster, brochure and pool safety checklist will be available in 16 community languages on the Kids Health website. Printed copies of the posters and brochures in English, Arabic, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese will be available free of charge from Kids Health. Paid media in these languages have also been organised on radio and in print.

Kids Health are launching this campaign around the second week of December and are building a database of key English and CALD contacts who may be interested in this campaign and the resources that will be available.

Would you happen to have contact details, particularly email addresses for organisations and services in your local area that deal with CALD communities so we can inform them of the campaign and resources that will be available? Community organisation details will also be useful for people who speak English.
