16 Days of Activism

From 25 November to 10 December is the United Nations 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence Campaign. It is a time to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991.

In support of this campaign, SI South Perth will be participating in the Annual Silent Memorial March which is held each year to commemorate and honour people who have died from family and domestic violence related incidents. Each year, between 18 and 24 people are murdered in Western Australia by a member of their family. Domestic homicides account for a quarter of all homicides in Western Australia and most commonly this is women being killed at the hands of their partners.

You are welcome to join us at what is a very moving and significant event in our effort to end domestic violence.

Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Place: Supreme Court Gardens, Barrack Street Perth
Time: 10.30 am – Free morning tea followed by speakers
            12.00 noon – silent march through central Perth

Movie Fundraiser – The Old Man & the Gun

Our final fundraising event of the year will be a gander at Robert Redford in what is being touted as his swansong.

Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018

School Packs Project

Throughout the month of September we are aiming to fill 500 bags with school stationery for children escaping domestic violence in local refuges. These are some of our most disadvantaged children and we believe they deserve to have the basic stationery needed to learn at school.

Items needed include: packs of highlighters, writing pens, twist crayons, coloured pencils, coloured markers, writing pencils, pencil cases, glue sticks, erasers, sharpeners.  The items must be NEW and can be any brand.

Donation boxes are located in community libraries throughout Perth and Mandurah for the month of September.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • Like our Project Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/schoolpacksproject/
  • Add some stationery items to your shopping trolley to donate
  • Collect stationery amongst your friends, sports teams, group or workplace
  • Make a cash donation for the purchase of stationery
  • Become a business sponsor for the bulk purchase of stationery.
