This White Ribbon Day on Friday 22nd November at 11am, join the City of Ryde in taking a stand together as a community to end violence and abuse.

Bringing together local residents, businesses and workers in Macquarie Park, the march will start outside of Macquarie University School of Engineering and end at Elouera Reserve. All are welcome.

Hear from local speakers, meet local support services and take the pledge with your community to stand up, speak out and act to prevent domestic and family violence.

The event will feature live music by local acts as well as a sausage sizzle for a gold coin donation, with proceeds going to the Ryde Hunters Hill Domestic and Family Violence Committee.

There will also be stalls from organisations operating within the City of Ryde that provide services to assist those affected by domestic violence.
