This month is domestic violence prevention month in Qld

Queensland has for many years held domestic violence prevention month in May, and this year is no execption. The purpose of the month is to recognise the everyday heroes who are making a difference to the lives of those who are subject to domestic violence, or cause domestic violence, and to highlight the issue of domestic violence to hopefully end or lessen it.

The month is launched tomorrow at 10.30 am by the Minister for Community Services and Housing and Minister for Women Karen Struthers in the auditorium at 111 George St, Brisbane. All are welcome. The award ceremony, recognising those who have made a difference, will be held tomorrow at 1pm in Queen St Mall.

On Wednesday there will be candle lighting ceremonies throughout the state, to commemorate those who were killed by family and domestic violence, and the families left behind. The Brisbane ceremony will be held at Kangaroo Point Park (where the old Tafe college was above the cliffs), at 5.30pm. All are welcome.

A listing of events can be found here.
