Rotary Says NO to Domestic Violence

We Walked With RESPECT - in this Peaceful Parade

Saturday 25 November 2023

Since 2018, Rotary in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands have been uniting to build awareness and education programmes to help our community identify, reduce and stop physical Domestic Violence and non-physical Coercive Control offending.

Now it was South Australia's turn to shine. Thank you to the 1,000+ people who participated in this peaceful and non-confrontational Walk for Respect along King William Street, Adelaide, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women - Saturday 25 November 2023. Although, we also all well recognise that Domestic Violence is a major problem for men and children as well.

A major shout out to the major community groups represented in the Parade, including many Rotary Clubs from around metropolitan Adelaide and beyond; Zonta; Zahra Foundation; Embolden; Women's Safety Services; Catherine House; Uniting Communities; the Western Collaboration Against Family and Domestic Abuse; Uniting SA; 16 Days of Activism Onkaparinga; Liberal Party of SA; The Hut Community Centre; OARS Community Transitions; AnglicareSA.

Saturday 25 November - Walk for Respect

Groups and Walkers met in Victoria Square, Adelaide : from 9am

Our Walk for Respect : started at 10am

We walked 1.2km along King William Street, to the Pioneer Women's Memorial Garden (opposite the Adelaide Festival Theatre) between 10am to 10.30am, chaperoned by the lovely officers from South Australian Police.

Inspirational Talks were presented in the garden between 10.30am and 11.30am, followed by some light hearted mixing, mingling and connection.

A focus of our Parade was to raise awareness of Coercive Control in our society through education, offering the wider community an insight into key signs of Coercive Control against Women • Men • Children • Pets !
