White Ribbon Day Luncheon

Today I volunteered for the White Ribbon Day Luncheon that was held at the Melbourne Town Hall. White Ribbon is a not-for-profit organisation that was set up to advocate for the eradication of violence against women. The organisation is unique in that it focuses on what men can do to prevent violence against women.

Violence against women remains a serious problem in Australia.

As a volunteer I took part in various aspects of the event, including setting up the venue, as well as ushering and speaking with guests about the organisation.

The event had a mix of corporate and not-for-profit speakers. Family violence was an issue that was heavily discussed at the event, both in terms of impact and prevention.

Upon the conclusion of the luncheon, myself and other volunteers were invited by White Ribbon to carry a banner and take part in the Walk Against Family Violence. The Walk is a march that has been organised by a collection of organisations to raise awareness of family violence which is a leading cause of homelessness for women in Australia. The march was very moving and it was great to see so many people, from different walks of life take part.

I would like to thank White Ribbon for providing me with this opportunity.
