Robinvale’s Walk against Violence
On Monday 4th December 2017 approximately 35 people met to walk in Robinvale’s inaugural walk in “Victorian’s against Violence” as part of the White Ribbon Day and the 16 days of Activism.
Representation was from staff and students, Robinvale College along with staff from the Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, Mallee District Aboriginal Services, Mallee Family Care and Robinvale District Health Services. The banner which was purchased through a grant from Women’s Health Loddon Mallee and donations from local services was unfurled and was displayed near Caix Square following the walk. The banner will be displayed from time to time in the community as a reminder that family violence is not tolerated.
As part of the event, staff from Mallee Murray Community Legal Service provided a presentation in regards to technology abuse and keeping safe. Many of those who supported the walk were in attendance. Robinvale Community Safety Committee would like to thank all the organisations involved for their support and hope to continue having further discussions on how as a community can decrease family violence.
