Standing up for equality
Mitchell Shire Council will put its hand up for 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence — a global campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and the severe impacts it has on our community.
The campaign will begin on Sunday as part of White Ribbon Day.
Mitchell Shire has a higher rate of family violence than all of the councils located in and around Melbourne — the family violence rate is almost double the Victorian average.
‘‘We are taking action against gender violence to unite our community together, so everyone can feel safe in Mitchell Shire,’’ Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said.
‘‘We hope to inspire positive change in the long term through this campaign which begins on White Ribbon Day. If we begin moving in the same direction, we can turn things around and get better.’’
The Mitchell Shire 16 Days of Activism campaign will run until December 10.
