May is National Domestic Violence Remembrance Day. So far in 2021, 11 women have been killed by their former or current domestic partner. Sydney Women's Homelessness Alliance are hosting a memorial at Parliament House to remember those who have been killed as a result of domestic and family violence. Sydney Women's Homelessness Alliance is a coalition of women and social services organisations, dedicated to removing barriers for women experiencing homelessness. Their work highlights that domestic violence remains the leading cause of homelessness for women and children. As part of the memorial, roses will be laid along the Macquarie Street fence outside Parliament House – red for women, white for children and yellow for men. The memorial forms a poignant reminder of the cost of gendered violence in our communities and is a powerful reminder of just how valuable and important each of these lives was. Thank you to Sydney Women's Homelessness Alliance for their ongoing work supporting women and children impacted by domestic violence and I offer my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones who have lost someone through family and domestic violence.
