Join us as we wind down the 16 Days of Activism and reflect on the impact of Gender-based Violence (GBV) on our campus community.
This vigil will serve as a space to mourn the lives lost and affected by GBV, acknowledging the University's past failings, and looking ahead to the positive steps now being taken to create a safer and more supportive environment for all.
Through the voices of speakers from across the University and the Student Representative Council (SRC), we will hear insights from the University's response to the Ross Report, an independent review of GBV, and explore the initiatives being implemented to foster a culture of respect and inclusivity.
The event will feature powerful readings of survivor stories and poetry, a moment of silence to honour those affected by GBV, and a symbolic white ribbon tying ceremony, symbolising our collective commitment to end GBV.
This event is not only an opportunity to commemorate those who have been harmed but also a chance to reaffirm our dedication to creating a campus where everyone feels safe and respected.
We invite you to join us as we collectively reflect on the past, celebrate the progress made, and pledge our commitment to a brighter future free from GBV.
