Australian of the Year and domestic violence awareness advocate, Rosie Batty, will speak at the University of the Sunshine Coast next month in a forum about domestic violence.
Ms Batty will discuss the need for education on safe and healthy relationships after the high number of cases reported at the Sunshine Coast each year.
She was named the 2015 Australian of the Year for advocating domestic violence prevention after her son, Luke, was tragically killed by his father in February 2014.
USC’s School of Social Sciences Head, Professor Doug Mahar, says the public is welcome to attend.
Doug Mahar: “It’s a free event. We’re covering all the costs for that, so anyone with an interest… we’ve still got room for another 150 people to come. We’ve got almost 200 folk registered already. So please, if you want to have a voice in developing the Sunshine Coast Plan, come and help us.”
