Singing from the same song-sheet: Choir advocates an end to family violence

(L-R) Angela McFarlane and Paulien George Source: SBS

An anti-violence choir has reunited after five years apart to push for an end to domestic abuse against women and children.

The 'No Excuses Choir' is creating a safe space for advocates and survivors of family violence to heal with each other while advocating for positive change.


 

Highlights

  • About 100 people are involved in the choir, including participants from regional Victoria, ACT, Queensland and New South Wales.
  • The 'No Excuses Choir' is not only giving domestic violence survivors a space to recover, they are also raising money for charity.
  • This year 2,500 Bags of Love are being prepared for delivery over the holiday period to offer women essential items like toiletries and make up.

 

If you or someone you know needs support for domestic and family violence you can call the Domestic Violence Impact Line on 1800 943 539 or contact 1-800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732.
