Walk to Change The Story – Bairnsdale

Wednesday 27th November 2019

With the sun shining above, there was a fantastic turn out of people, organisations and students from respectful relationships schools (7 schools in total) attending the “Walk to Change the Story” in Bairnsdale. The walk was in aid of raising awareness and eliminating gender based violence.

This event coincides with 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual global campaign that runs from 25 November to 10 December.

It aims to raise awareness and encourage action for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls across the world.

Along with Quantum this event was a co-ordination of local organisations aiming to bring this hideous problem under the spotlight.

Organisations such as:

  • East Gippsland Shire
  • Uniting
  • Anglicare
  • Latrobe Community Health Service
  • Bairnsdale Regional Health Service
  • Gippsland Lakes Community Health

 

We would also like to thank Victorian Police Family Violence Unit for attending as well.
