Thursdays in Black

What is the Thursdays in Black campaign?

The Thursdays in Black campaign is an international campaign that has long been advocating and raising awareness for the end of violence against women. YWCA Victoria has initiated a local campaign aimed at Victorians to show solidarity with victims of gender violence and to raise funds for YWCA's women's housing and education programs. 


YWCA Victoria's Thursdays in Black will RAISE funds for projects and initiatives to end gender based violence.

The funds will SUPPORT the YWCA Victoria in their goal to end gender inequality, and act as a show of solidarity against all forms of gender based violence.

The YWCA Victoria's mission is to EMPOWER individuals with the tools to make confident and informed choices around personal safety and consent.

Together we will UNITE in the fight to raise awareness for gender equality to stop gender based violence.


Join us by wearing BLACK on any Thursday in October and contributing via a gold coin donation.
