Melbourne’s Jewish Care has planned a coffee cup campaign in support of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

Thursday 25 November marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and the beginning of the 16 Days campaign.

With messages that encourage gender equality and respectful behaviour, the cups were distributed to cafes across the Jewish community in the lead-up to the campaign.

“Cafes play a vital role in bringing people together, and campaigns like these send a clear message that together we stand united against inequality and violence,” said Cassandra Barrett, Program Manager of Healthy Communities.

“This year’s campaign is focused on respect for women, and the tangible actions that support it. We hope that seeing these cups is a timely reminder of the role we can all play in creating a safer and more equal community.”

Jewish Care would like to express our sincere thanks to all of the cafes who have supported the campaign and helped to spread this important message. Please show your support by ordering a takeaway coffee during the next 16 days.
