Acting Assistant Commissioner Johnson and Mayor Jamieson address media on the launch of the 2017 White Ribbon campaign on the Sunshine Coast

White Ribbon Day on November 25 is an internationally recognised day of action and calls upon all Australians to stand up, speak out and act to stop men’s violence and abuse against women.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Darryl Johnson and Mayor Mark Jamieson joined Queensland Fire and Emergency Service, Queensland Ambulance Service and local White Ribbon committee members to launch the 2017 White Ribbon campaign on the Sunshine Coast with a clear message for the community that domestic and family violence will not be tolerated.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Johnson, who is the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Committee chair, said White Ribbon Day aimed to create an Australian society where women and girls can live in safety, free from violence and abuse.

“This month, the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Committee, council and the community will come together to take a stand and take an oath against domestic violence,” Acting Assistant Commissioner Johnson said.

“As community leaders who care about the women and children in our lives, we can take responsibility to help ensure that women and children live free from fear and violence.”

This year, the Sunshine Coast community is invited to take the oath against domestic violence and step up to a White Ribbon Day photo booth in Ocean Street, Maroochydore from 7.30pm to midnight on Friday, November 24 and Loo with a View at Mooloolaba from 2.30pm to 6pm on Saturday, November 25.
