Community Event This Friday Promoting Awareness of Domestic Violence and its Impacts

Invitation Friday 7 March 2008

My apologies: I can’t seem to load this invitation. The memorial is this Friday, 7 March, 6.30-8pm at Tahaki Reserve, opposite View Rd, Mt Eden. There will be live music provided by Mahinarangi Tocker and others, and finger food.

The Auckland Coalition for the Safety of Women and Children is a non government coalition established to help improve safety for women and children in Auckland. We are determined to help end domestic violence in our community. One of the ways we want to achieve this is by raising public awareness about domestic violence and its catastrophic impact on women and children. We want to raise awareness through remembrance.

Did you know that in NZ every year on average 14 women and 10 children are killed by a member of their family?

Did you know that in NZ 1 in 3 women report being a victim of physical and or sexual abuse by a current or ex partner throughout their lifetime?

Domestic violence is a crime. Women and children have a right to live free of fear and violence.

Show your support and come along to our community event on 7th March 2008 6.30pm – 8pm at Tahaki Reserve in Mt Eden.

All are welcome.

Please spread the attached invitation as wide as you can. Together we can create change.

PS: Sue Bradford and Christina Pusztay will be on the ‘Good Morning’ programme on TV 1 this Thursday (6th) at 11.48am talking about the Memorial
