Share a meal and your thoughts at the Open Table Lunch to help stop violence against women.

The Hume Community for Respect and Equality of Women (CREW) will host a free public lunch with family-friendly activities and discussion on how we can end gender-based violence in Melbourne’s North West.

Coinciding with the 16 Days of Activism to End Gendered Violence, the lunch will commence at 11am, Saturday 8 December at the Craigieburn Tennis and Community Centre in Craigieburn. Involving the Hume City Council, DPV Health and other community groups including the Multicultural Centre for Women's Health (MCWH), Pakistan Cultural Group, and the Oorja Foundation, the Open Table Lunch will be a catered event featuring cultural performances, face painting, photo booth, henna art and much more. A forum discussion will also encourage attendees to share their views and ideas on how we can all take action against domestic violence.

Hume is burdened with some of the highest reported incidents of violence against women in metropolitan Melbourne. Hume CREW – an alliance of local community organisations seeking to create a safer community for women and girls - is an initiative of DPV Health committed to reversing this situation. By supporting the community in challenging gender inequality and disrespectful attitudes towards women, the CREW aims to address these main causes of violence against women.

Originated by the first Women's Global Leadership Institute in 1991, the ‘16 Days Campaign’ runs from 25 November through to 10 December and is used by individuals and organisations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
