Candlelight Vigil 2020

Wednesday 6 May from 6pm

Join us and other Victorians as we light a candle in remembrance of women and children who lost their lives as a result of family violence.

The Candlelight Vigil takes place every year on the first Wednesday in May. This year we will be following the COVID-19 public health guidelines and connecting with each other online.

You can participate by lighting a candle, observing a minute of silence and sharing a photo of your candle using #EndDV or #LightACandle2020

You may also wish to share your reflections or remembrances.


We will be sharing photos, videos and reflections from 6pm onwards on Wednesday 6 May 2020
