Media Release - 18 November 2020

Campbelltown residents are being encouraged to show their support for ending domestic violence in our community across 16 days of activism.

Sixteen days of activism calls for action against gender-based violence and will be held between Wednesday 25 November and Thursday 10 December.

To mark the first day of the campaign in Campbelltown, Council is joining with local domestic violence support services, police and local businesses to hold the Driving Out Violence Convoy.

“By raising awareness and supporting initiatives such as this, we can bring the conversation about domestic violence into the open and confront the issue so that we can all work together towards ending domestic violence,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“Every week one woman dies as a result of domestic violence which is why it’s so important that we speak openly and honestly about this with everyone in our community,” Cr Brticevic said.

The convoy will start from Wests Leagues Club at Leumeah at 9am Wednesday 25 November and travel across the LGA.

Residents wanting to show their support for the convoy are encouraged to remain physically distanced from others and wave as it passes their area.

Throughout the 16 Days of Activism, Council will also be using its social media platforms to highlight the signs of domestic violence and the support services available within the community.
