Walking in solidarity with victim survivors

Walk Against FV

Published Jan 05 2024

Merri Health’s goal is to create a better future for our community – one that is free of violence and is gender equitable, safe and respectful.

To help create a future where all families are safe, equal and respected we took part in the Walk Against Family Violence on Friday 24 November. The walk is organised as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which a global campaign led annually by UN Women.

Jillian Dent, Merri Health Acting General Manager, Family and Community, said: “It was fabulous to see Spring Street turn orange again this year, and so uplifting to stand side-by-side with others who want to see an end to gender-based violence.”

Merri Health stands in solidarity with victim-survivors. By taking part in the walk, we joined communities all around the world calling for the elimination of family violence and violence against women.

We advocate for gender equality, the prevention of family violence, and support victim-survivors through our Family Violence Counselling Service.
