White Ribbon Day 2016 - Be the Change
In this episode I have interviews about how men can be a major part of the change in attitudes about women and domestic violence, as well as the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Womens Shelter, the Soroptomists, and a number of other participants from the 2016 Hornsby Walk the Talk. Also highlighted this week is an interview with Zohara Mendes who spoke about the work she is doing raising awareness for her generation about domestic violence. the wealth of experience and wisdom in our community is evident in these interviews. This is about people who care, sharing how and why they care and being prepared to step outside their comfort to encourage others to do the same.
We can be the change we want to see in the world. Listen out for the interview with Zohara Mendes who I suspect you will hear about in the future. She is a passionate yet unimposing speaker and here talks to me about her work around Domestic Violence.
I have to do a shout out to Normanhurst Boys who invited me to speak at their White Ribbon afternoon tea. Many thanks for the invitation...check out the group below - a very dynamic group of representatives from schools around Sydney. Some travelled 2 hours on a Thursday afternoon to make the event.
