Join us for the launch of the Rekiah O’Donnell Memorial Mural at a special event on Saturday, 25 November, to commemorate the 10th year remembrance of Rekiah O’Donnell.
Saturday, 25 November is also the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Hear Rekiah’s story as told by her mother, author Kerryn Robertson, and join us for a fundraising barbecue with money raised going to Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre. There will be white ribbons on sale to support White Ribbon Day (17 November).
Rekiah O’Donnell was a victim of domestic violence at the age of just 22 years. Her mother, Kerryn Robertson, is determined that the story of her daughter’s short life should be shared to give hope to other victims and families caught up in the cycle of violence. Please wear something purple in memory of Rekiah.
