Queensland Domestic Violence Remembrance Day Service 2011

On the first Wednesday in May every year, those who have died because of domestic and family violence are remembered right across Australia. Simultaneous vigils of remembrance began in Queensland in 2005 with the 15 member organisation of the Queensland Domestic Violence Services Network (QDVSN) hosting candle lighting ceremonies at 6pm throughout Queensland. On May 4, 2011, Myrna Dawson spoke at the annual Queensland Domestic Violence Remembrance Day Service in Brisbane.
