Hills Community March for Change

As a community response to domestic violence against women, hundreds of our local community recently marched to make sure the ongoing scourge of domestic violence is acted upon.

Women in Australia deserve to be safe in their homes and in their relationships.

We need stronger and better laws, a fit for purpose bail system and more education across society with more support for Australians experiencing domestic violence.

I would like to thank Dr Michelle Byrne - Emeritus Mayor, Bryan Mullan and Soroptimist International - The Hills for their spectacular efforts in organising this well attended community march through Castle Hill.

Thank you to the hundreds of students from Kellyville High SchoolCastle Hill High School and Oakhill College who attended the march and to the students at Kellyville High School who created a powerful short film on the importance of domestic violence education.
