Council lights up for 16 Days of Activism
2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the 16 Days of Activism campaign. 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicked off on 25 November, which was also the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
To mark this year’s theme ‘Orange the world’ Council has lit up key locations across Cumberland City to take a stand in support of the elimination of all forms of family and domestic violence. Domestic and family violence is a crime. It includes any form of controlling or abusive behaviour from a spouse or intimate partner and ex-partner or a family member.
If you or any one you know are in need of assistance, visit our domestic and family violence page, for a list of resources in multiple languages.
