Village Pump November Column

White Socks Walk 'n Wheels
On Saturday 21 November at 10:00am I am hosting a community event at the Ferny Grove State School. The White Socks Walk 'n Wheels is a White Ribbon Community Walk that will raise awareness and make the statement that we will not be silent as a community any more about domestic violence. I am encouraging everyone to come along and take a stand. Whether you come on a push-bike or in a wheelchair, whether you wear the latest cross-trainers or a pair of old gum-boots, pull on your white socks and your loudest shirt and come on down to the school on Saturday morning of 21 November for the walk. We are asking people to donate $2 to the White Ribbon Australia event.

On 14 September I spoke in Queensland Parliament on Domestic Violence and how it had affected my daughter. My family had to learn the warning signs of Domestic Violence through bitter experience. I realised then that Domestic Violence was not limited to certain social groups or to tired stereotypes.
