On Wednesday 3rd May 2023, people across Australia will light a candle to remember those who have been killed by domestic and family violence. By joining this evening of reflection and remembrance, we honour their memories and help bring light to this national crisis.
Over the past 10 years in Australia, one woman has been killed nearly every week and one child killed each fortnight in the context of domestic and family violence. The Candlelight Vigil provides a space for people to come together to grieve for them, share messages of hope, and ensure that we never forget the people behind the statistics.
Domestic and family violence affects people from all walks of life and includes many forms of abuse and violence that is not always physical.
The Vigil is also a call to action to speak up, lifting the veil of silence that surrounds domestic and family violence, and reach out for support if experiencing, or perpetrating violence.
We will have specialist counsellors available for support and debriefing. You can register your attendance at Domestic and Family Violence Candlelight Vigil 2023, West Perth, Wed 3rd May 2023, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm AWST | Humanitix
