Midland walking the talk against violence for White Ribbon Day

THE annual Midland March for White Ribbon Day is on again this month on Wednesday, November 25.

The march to help stop violence against women is organised by the North-East Metro White Ribbon Day Committee.

It will be the second Midland march. More than 150 people attended last year.

Ann Bourke, Manager of Relationships Australia Midland, said they are hoping for an even larger crowd this time and invited people from all walks of life to attend.

Ms Bourke said the organising committee represents a range of local organisations who donate much of their time and services to this very important topic.

“We all feel very strongly about the issue of domestic violence and together can help unite the community against violence towards women and children.

“At the march there is a real passion about changing the future and raising awareness about domestic violence. It also helps spread the word to people that there is help available.”

The committee comprises local organisations like the Midland Women’s Health Care Place and Centrecare.
