Editor November 22, 2017

THE Greater Shepparton Family Violence Prevention Network is getting active with the local launch of its 16 day Days of Activism campaign through a partnership with Shepparton Parkrun.

The Greater Shepparton Family Violence Prevention Network is encouraging all members of the Greater Shepparton community to support the 16 Days of Activism campaign and will be commencing Greater Shepparton campaign with a media launch on the 22nd of November at Eastbank Exhibition Centre.

The launch will unveil the Respectful Relationships Art Exhibition and will display works created by Greater Shepparton secondary students illustrating their interpretation of the prevention of violence against women and children and gender equality. These works will also be judged by local artist “Tank” and winners announced at the launch.

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women marks the formal start of the 16 days of Activism in Greater Shepparton will witness a sea of orange and purple participating in Shepparton Parkrun at 7:45am on Saturday the 25th of November as a symbolic stand that gender based violence is not tolerated within the Greater Shepparton community.

There will be 200 singlets to give away around saying ‘no to violence’ and The Lions Club will be providing a free breakfast. There will also be a coffee van providing free coffee.
