Sunshine Coast communities to say no to domestic and family violence
May is National Domestic Violence Prevention Month and the community is invited to join Mayor Mark Jamieson on Wednesday, May 3 for a march and candlelit vigil to remember those who have been affected by domestic and family violence.
In partnership with the regional Domestic and Family Violence support service Centacare/SCOPE, Mayor Jamieson urged residents to unite and send a clear message that domestic and family violence would not be tolerated in our community.
He said Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month would continue to raise awareness about the occurrence and impacts of domestic and family violence to our community, and provide information about available support for those seeking help.
“It will engage and educate Queenslanders to create a community that supports respectful relationships, practises positive attitudes and behaviours, and promotes a culture of non-violence,” Mayor Jamieson said.
