Raising the awareness about violence against women is crucial to the wellbeing of our society. White Ribbon Day is on Tuesday 25 November and it is important that we all make a stand and speak out about the violence against those who are vulnerable. Wear a white ribbon and support White Ribbon Day http://whiteribbon.org.nz/.
Three churches in the Northern Presbytery are participating in the event, the Hope Christian Centre, Kaitaia, St Luke’s, Remuera and Greenlane Presbyterian Church. The churches are inviting people from the community to plant white ribbons in the lawn in front of the churches between Sunday 23 November to Tuesday 25 November to make a silent protest that family violence is not ok.
