Reclaim the Night 2019

September 30, 2019 · Events

Together with the local community, we invite you to Reclaim The Night on Saturday 19th October 2019, 6.00pm – 7.30pm

Reclaim the Night is an annual international event that aims to empower all participants, while protesting against violence against women. The Reclaim the Night movement today is focused on empowering women to come together, and change community attitudes. Local women (including family violence survivors) from the West Heidelberg community identified the need to make a strong community statement about violence against women.  This now annual walk started in 2014 with a local Reclaim the Night walk through the streets of West Heidelberg.

The walk protests against violence to all and aims to promote a respectful community free of violence. The annual walk finishes back at Banyule Community Health where the participants enjoy a BBQ together.  The event is open to all who support peace and safety in the community, especially a women’s right to walk safely at any time of the day or night.

The walk departs from Banyule Community Health at 6.00pm, 21 Alamein Rd, West Heidelberg.

Please RSVP for catering purposes (BBQ dinner provided) to Melissa 9450 2019 or Dana 9450 2610.
We hope you can join us.
