After a small break, the annual Ochre Ribbon Day campaign will be returning to Forbes.

The aim of this campaign is to raise awareness of family violence and its devastating impacts in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The Ochre Ribbon symbolises the vision of eliminating family violence in our communities and sends a strong message that violence will not be tolerated against women, children and men.

This is the fourth year for Ochre Ribbon Campaign to be held in Forbes. In 2017, Binaal Billa FVPLS, in partnership with Yoorana Gunya and Forbes Wiradjuri Dreaming Centre put on the third Ochre Ribbon event in Forbes.

Binaal Billa Ochre are inviting everyone to visit their cupcake stall on Wednesday from 11am on the corner of Templar and Rankin streets.
