Six groups of 20 people flying white balloons will march down Parker Street at staggered times on Friday morning November 20 to show their support for White Ribbon Day.
White Ribbon Day is held every year in Australia, and is an occasion for communities come together to promote their vision of an Australia free from violence against women and children.
The groups will include students from all four Cootamundra schools as well as NSW Police, members of the Mens Shed, and representatives of the Department of Communities and Justice.
They will march from the Olympic Hotel to the Post Office, where there will be an information base set up on the grassed area.
The marches will take place from 10am to 12.30pm.
They have been organised by Mission Australia Community Services in Cootamundra, which for the past ten years or so has hosted some form of community awareness gathering in Cootamundra.
"Last year we held a larger gathering in a park," a spokeswoman said, "but we've recognised that this year will have to be a bit different.
"We hope to also get some local agencies to 'walk by' also in small numbers," she said.
"These 'walk-byes' will be staggered so as to not breach Covid restrictions.
"After arriving at the base the children will be given ribbons/wristbands and will leave, to assist with minimising numbers.
"We also hope to get local businesses on-board by providing items for window decoration."
Mission Australia says the White Ribbon vision is an Australia free from all forms of violence and abuse against women and children.
"This is every woman's and child's right and everyone's responsibility," the spokeswoman said.
"Violence against women occurs across cultures and communities.
"It takes many forms, including physical, sexual, social, emotional, cultural, spiritual and financial abuse, and a wide range of controlling, coercive and intimidating behaviour.
"Regardless of the form it takes, it is understood to be most often used by men and its impact is to limit and control women's independence."
