Our guest speaker at this year’s White Ribbon Day event was ‘2015 Australian of the Year’ Rosie Batty. Rosie’s name has become synonymous with courage and resilience. A tireless family violence campaigner, Rosie established The Luke Batty Foundation to support women and children affected by the trauma of family violence.

Rosie has also been named as the founding member of an advisory panel for preventing violence against women, and in 2015 she received the Pride of Australia’s National Courage Medal.

Rosie shared her remarkable story of resilience, courage, inspiration and making a difference.

The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), and Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, also addressed the audience.
