Men, women and children will step out against domestic violence at a community event in the Ipswich CBD next month.
The annual Walk Against Domestic and Family Violence will be held as part of a partnership between Ipswich City Council and the Domestic Violence Action Centre.
Events including a walk, sausage sizzle, candle lighting vigil and plaque dedication will be held in d’Arcy Doyle Place from 4.30pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday, 3 May.
Social development spokesman Councillor Charlie Pisasale said the event was part of Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.
“The month raises awareness of the social and personal impacts of domestic and family violence and also promotes the support services available to those affected,” he said.
“By supporting these events Ipswich sends a clear message that domestic violence simply isn’t acceptable and won’t be tolerated.
“The walk is an important part of this and I encourage people to take part on the day. Registration is not required.”
