DO Details

ALL IN is a call to unite as a community and take the White Ribbon Oath.

In Australia, one woman is killed by a partner or ex-partner every single week. Domestic violence is the leading cause of death for women under 45. The situation has reached epidemic proportions and accounts for 40% of police work. Staying silent is not a solution.

It is a critical time for the country. Massive reformation is needed in the way domestic violence is addressed and managed on a national and local level. But it needs to start with a voice. Your voice. My voice. All voices. We need to abolish the code of silence that perpetuates domestic abuse. We need to acknowledge that abuse if we are witness to it. We need greater public awareness of the facts. We need to speak for those who are too afraid to speak for themselves. And hopefully in time, we can help them find their own voice too.

* Ticket price covers beverages and finger food from 7pm until 12am. * Music entertainment will also be provided * A raffle and auction will take place to further aid the fundraising efforts * There will be an opportunity to be photographed with the oath - use it as your profile picture in the lead up to White Ribbon Day on November 25th.

Cost - $100
