The City of Canterbury Bankstown is taking its campaign against domestic violence to the streets, as part of its commitment to national White Ribbon Day (25 November).
Administrator Richard Colley said Council had joined forces with local bus company Transdev to promote the anti-domestic violence message.
“We want our message that violence against women and children is not acceptable, under any circumstances, to be spread far and wide,” Mr Colley said.
“So it’s great that 20 Transdev buses will be displaying that message for the next four weeks.
“Thousands of motorists across Sydney see these buses each week, so hopefully our message will resonate with these drivers and make them think about how they can take a personal stand against violence against women and children.”
Transdev staff are also taking part in the annual Canterbury-Bankstown Tug ‘O War Cup at the John Mackay Sports Centre at the Memorial Oval Complex, as part of White Ribbon Day activities this Friday.
Transdev is one of a number of organisations which have entered teams in the Cup, with the event kicking off at Midday.
Sydney’s largest White Ribbon Day March will take place that evening, starting at 5.30pm from Gillies Street, Lakemba.
The march will conclude at Parry Park, at 6.30pm, where there will be a free BBQ, face painting, photo booth, and $1 ice creams.
