Key members of Hedland’s Aboriginal communities came together last week to observe the Ochre Ribbon Campaign, hosted by founders the Aboriginal Family Law Service. The Ochre Ribbon Campaign was started in 2014 by the AFLS after witnessing the need for specific attention on Aboriginal family violence. The colour of ochre was chosen to represent the people and their connection to land. Tyne McConnon from the South Hedland Aboriginal Family Law Service and Senior Sergeant Jeremy Marklew spoke at the event. They both play very different but important roles when it comes to addressing family violence. So far this year, there has been 18 people killed as a result of family violence in Australia. Ms McConnon said the prevalence of violence around the country was alarming.Back to News
