Kempsey begins 16 Days of Activism and White Ribbon Day

Council and Kempsey Family Support Service have installed flags along Smith Street, Kempsey in acknowledgement of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence and White Ribbon Day, which both began on Saturday 25 November.

The purple flags, which read ‘our community says NO to domestic violence’, are to help raise awareness and stop men’s violence against women. The flags will stay up during the entire 16 days of activism.

Council encourages residents to join the campaign to eliminate violence in our community.
