Twelve leading Melbourne Jewish organisations will come together to support the annual Walk Against Family Violence and send a clear message that the Victorian Jewish community stands united in saying ‘No’ to family violence.

Jewish Care Victoria, the Jewish Community Council of Victoria, the Rabbinical Council of Victoria, the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (Victoria), Tzedek, Unchain My Heart, Maccabi Victoria, Pathways Melbourne, Progressive Judaism Victoria, Impact, the Australasian Union of Jewish Students and the Australian Jewish News will walk together with a united banner, and invite all members of the Jewish community to join them on November 23.

The Walk Against Family Violence event is a public event organised by the Walk Against Family Violence committee/team, which is separate from the 12 Jewish organisations listed in our press release. All members of the public are invited to join the walk at Federation Square.

Now in its 10thyear, the Walk Against Family Violence is held in support of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and aims to raise awareness of the impact of family violence on the community, and remember those who have lost their lives.

All members of the Victorian Jewish community are encouraged to join the Walk Against Family Violence. Look for our banner at Federation Square from 12:00 pm.

Following an address from Lord Mayor Sally Capp, the Walk will proceed from Federation Square into the CBD before concluding at 1.30pm. The theme colour for the Walk is orange and all ages, abilities and fitness levels are welcome.
