Train Commuters Discuss Domestic Violence with Chris Hayes MP

November 23, 2018

As a White Ribbon Ambassador and as part of White Ribbon Day, Fowler MP, Chris Hayes had an early morning start at Liverpool Station for “Love 2 Live”.

“Love 2 Live” is an initiative of Ragina Naidu, an advocate for White Ribbon Australia, who, together with staff and management of Sydney Trains, held a candlelight vigil, sausage sizzle and handed out merchandise to commuters.

Also in attendance were Werriwa MP, Anne Stanley, and Liverpool Councillors, Charishma Kaliyanda and Nathan Hagarty

“It was great to join such an enthusiastic team of people and the response from the public was amazing.”

“Domestic violence is a disturbing subject, but one that impacts the whole community.”

 “Congratulations to everyone involved in today’s event.”

“The more we can talk about domestic violence, the better it will be for our society as a whole.”

“When it comes to violence against women, the message is clear, never commit, never excuse, and never be silent.  It is up to us if we are to break the cycle of violence,” Chris Hayes said.
