The Zonta Club of Oamaru, New Zealand, in partnership with Safer Waitaki, held a White Ribbon Day breakfast ahead of the 16 Days of Activism. The event, which 65 people attended, featured guest speaker Jude Simpson. Simpson is a violence victim, but her story offered hope. With the right intervention and education, she has turned her life around. She is now employed by the New Zealand Police and is a strong advocate for the message “Family Violence is Not Okay.” Proceeds from the breakfast will go to Women’s Refuge, an organization for women and their children dedicated to preventing and ending family violence.
