Run or walk to end domestic and family violence this May - Registrations are now open for Darkness to Daylight 2024


Wear Purple for Change

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with GaWun Supplies and the launch of the Gani Yirra project.

Beyond being visually striking, these purple work shirts by GaWun Supplies are designed to spark meaningful conversations and shine a light on the unique challenges faced by Indigenous women in our communities.

Each shirt features the intricate artwork of Sharaya Summers, a proud Mandingalbay Yidinji and Birrigubba woman. Sharaya's design represents the profound impact of domestic and family violence on Indigenous women, and shows the journey towards freedom and recovery. The artwork also highlights the crucial role of supportive communities rallying together to break the cycle.

Named Gani Yirra {Ga Ni Yi Rra}, Gani (North) signifies moving forward, and Yirra (Seed) means planting the seed of change. Sharaya's artwork is a symbol of strength, resilience, and unity.

This collaboration was inspired by the story of Melisa Drummond-Anderson, a Nywaigi Woman from her mother's side, Gumulaig from Urpi Kigu Peoyadh Ras/Mabuyag Island in Torres Strait from her father's side. A survivor of domestic and family violence herself, Melisa now helps other women to reach their full potential. Melisa shared her experiences with GaWun Supplies’ Michael Grundon, and these conversations sparked an idea: a work shirt that makes a real difference.

Purchasing these Indigenous-designed purple work shirts goes beyond making a statement; it actively contributes to the financial support and empowerment of Indigenous women facing domestic violence. $10 from the sale of each shirt will be donated directly to the Challenge DV public fund, supporting projects that raise awareness and prevent domestic and family violence in our communities.

Together, we can break the cycle. Buy your purple shirt to raise awareness and stand with a community who are working towards a future without domestic and family violence.

A heartfelt thank you to Michael Grundon of GaWun Supplies and Melisa Drummond-Anderson of BLAQ Diamonds Women Empowerment for collaborating with Challenge DV on this project.
