MAYOR HONOURED FOR DOMESTIC AND FAMILY VIOLENCE PREVENTION
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams was recognised by fellow councillors after being named on Queensland’s inaugural Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Honour Roll.
Cr Williams is one of the individual inductees on the roll, which also includes Redland City Council in the corporates category.
Deputy Mayor Julie Talty acknowledged the Mayor at today’s general council meeting.
“The Honour Roll celebrates individuals and champions of the cause who are making a difference by raising awareness and working to change community attitudes, directly supporting or raising funds to help victims and those affected, and educating others on ways they can help.
“This city is gaining a reputation for leading the charge against domestic and family violence and it is due to the leadership of our local Honour Roll recipients and others.”
Cr Talty said Mayor Williams would be joined on the Honour Roll by other local residents who had also shown their commitment to supporting those impacted by domestic and family violence. For a full list of honour roll inductees, visit the website.
