Gippsland turns purple for family violence
Landmarks across Gippsland will turn purple tomorrow night (Wednesday) as they join other landmarks in shining a light on family violence.
Lighting the Loy Yang Cooling Towers, the Wedge Performing Arts Centre and Clocktower in Sale and the West Gippsland Art Centre in Warragul, the local landmarks will join places like the Melbourne Town Hall, Flinders Street Station and the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, as people across Australia light a candle to remember the women and children who have died as a result of domestic violence.
In Australia, one woman is murdered every week by her current or former partner. By supporting the Candlelight Vigil people can help honour their memories and bring light to this urgent issue.
