All of us, together for family violence prevention

Horsham Town Hall’s Pynsent Street facade will be flood-lit in purple today. 

Wimmera Committee Against Family Violence has arranged the lighting to highlight May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month. 

This year’s theme – All of us, together – recognises that to achieve real and lasting positive cultural change, all levels of society need to be involved and take action against family violence.

Wimmera Committee Against Family Violence spokesperson Shane Podolski said by lighting up the hall, the committee hoped to raise community awareness of the social and personal impacts of domestic and family violence and the support available to those affected.

“Wimmera Committee Against Family Violence is a local group of agency and community members working together to raise awareness of family violence and its impacts,” he said. 

“Our message is that there can be no tolerance of domestic and family violence. 

“It’s completely preventable and we all have a role to play in eliminating it.” 

Wimmera Committee Against Family Violence has partnered with Horsham Rural City Council to light Horsham Town Hall purple this evening. Purple is the colour symbolising family violence awareness.
