Hundreds of people are expected to march against domestic violence tomorrow in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
The White Ribbon Day march will leave from the top of Hannan Street at 11am, finishing with a barbecue at St Barbara’s Square until 3pm.
Two people – a man and a woman – will talk about their experiences with domestic violence and the men of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be invited to swear an oath against it.
Domestic violence outreach worker Fiona McKenzie urged people to join the march and support the White Ribbon Foundation.
“One in five women are affected by domestic violence. It impacts on every member of the family,” she said. “It stops children being the adults they were meant to be and it can affect the wider family too, because they know it’s happening but can’t stop it.
“It affects government services – it basically pervades every aspect of our society.”
