The community is invited to attend the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Day event at Mooloolaba, including a free family movie on the beach, on Sunday, November 25 from 4-9pm.
White Ribbon Day is an internationally recognised day of action, and calls upon all Australians to stand up, speak out and act to stop men’s violence against women.
The movie night will feature entertainment, fun activities to participate in, as well as an opportunity to learn more about White Ribbon Australia and support services on the Sunshine Coast.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said council continued to be front and centre leading campaigns such as White Ribbon Day to help break the cycle of violence against women and children.
“As mayor of the Sunshine Coast and a proud White Ribbon ambassador, I am determined to do everything I can by working with our law enforcement agencies and service providers to say no to domestic violence,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“We are constantly reminded that domestic and family violence can affect any person - regardless of gender, age, socio-economic status or cultural background.
“Chances are, someone you know is a victim of domestic and family violence.
“As a community we all have a responsibility to stop the behaviour and attitudes that contribute to the cycle of domestic and family violence.
“It is only through our collective efforts that we can turn this around.”
White Ribbon Day committee chair Queensland Police Service Sunshine Coast District Officer Superintendent Darryl Johnson said White Ribbon Day aimed to create an Australian society where everyone can live in safety, free from violence and abuse.
“Over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week in Australia as a result domestic violence,” Supt Johnson said.
“As leaders in our community, we need to take responsibility to stop all types of violence.
“On November 25, the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Committee is bringing our community together this White Ribbon Day, to end violence against women.
“We are inviting the community to attend the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Day event at Mooloolaba. This is your opportunity to make a stand against domestic violence.”
