May 5, 2020
Tomorrow, May 6, is National Domestic Violence Remembrance Day.
The Gunnedah community can join people around the country in taking a stand against domestic and family violence, an issue that has been highlighted as we see increased cases during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gunnedah Shire Council is supporting a national move with a Facebook event page allowing Gunnedah people to voice their support.
People are encouraged to spread the message by posting a photo of themselves, their family, friends or work team holding a candle.
Including the following message with your post to help make a unified stand against domestic violence:
“Today on National Domestic Violence Remembrance Day, I stand up and say no to domestic and family violence and light this candle to acknowledge all of the victims of domestic abuse.”
If you or someone you know needs help, please call NSW Domestic Violence Line on 1800 656 463. In an emergency call 000.
