November 25 is White Ribbon Day - a male-led campaign to stop violence against women.
Phil Cleary was a prominent player and coach at the Coburg Football Club. He is an Australian commentator on politics and sport, particularly Australian rules football, and a former independent politician.
Phil has been at the forefront of the campaign to stop violence against women since his sister was murdered by her ex-partner in 1987.
"I say to good men, you can't tolerate a bloke who stands at the bar with you and says that the wife is giving him the s#@ts or he gave her a slap. He can have a discussion about a relationship being difficult, but the minute there's the sense of a man doing harm to a woman I say to blokes imagine if that was your sister, what if that was your daughter, and what if sadly it was your mother?"
Victorian Police Acting Inspector Dean Clinton will also provide valuable insight into how family violence is affecting the Mornington Peninsula Shire and beyond.
Entry is by donation & all proceeds will go to the Mornington Peninsula Community Charitable Fund, assisting our community to achieve greater goals.
Come prepared to be a part of the solution and talk about what you can do to make a positive change in the lives of people impacted by family violence.
A thought provoking and essential discussion.
