Walk with us to say NO to Domestic Violence

Catherine House is proud to be joining the ‘Rotary Says NO to Domestic Violence’ Walk for Respect on Saturday, 25 November, and we need YOU to walk with us.

This year, fifty-seven women have been murdered by men since January. 88% of these women died as a result of intimate partner violence or domestic and family violence. 

This free, peaceful parade aims to raise awareness and offer the wider community an insight into key signs of coercive control. It is also an opportunity for us to stand up for our mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, friends and colleagues and say this can no longer be accepted.

Register to walk and select Catherine House as your group. Participants supporting Catherine House are encouraged to wear a Catherine House t-shirt, which can be purchased at the discounted price of $15.00.

We particularly encourage workplaces, schools and community clubs to get involved and join us on this very important day.
