For the second year running, Melbourne’s Jewish Care has developed a coffee cup campaign in support of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Featuring messages that promote bystander action, the cups were distributed to cafes across the Jewish community in the lead-up to the International Day on Monday 25 November.

“Cafes play an important role in bringing people in the community together,” said Cassandra Barrett, Team Leader of Healthy Communities.

“This year, our 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence activities are focused on prevention and community empowerment, and these cups echo that theme. We hope that seeing these cups will encourage customers to reflect on the role that each and every one of us can play in creating a safer and more equal Jewish community.”

Jewish Care would like to express our sincere thanks to all of the cafes who have supported the campaign. Please show your support by ordering a takeaway coffee during the 16 Days of Activism.
