What is Walk for WAGEC?
Walk for WAGEC is a 5km walk or 10km run at Centennial Park, Sydney on 7 May 2023 or virtually between 1 May and 7 May. This year our goal is to collectively raise $350,000, which will help deliver crucial programs for women that build financial independence, nurture healing and well-being, enrich children’s development and prevent violence from happening in the first place.
Who is Women’s and Girls Emergency Centre
Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a feminist, grassroots organisation that supports women and families in crisis and advocates for social change in the community. We are based in Redfern, Sydney and work on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation. Every night, we support 200 women and children impacted by homelessness, domestic violence and systemic disadvantage. We do this by providing material aid, case management, biopsychosocial support, accommodation, and crisis responses. Equally we seek to address the underlying causes of gender-based violence through primary prevention activities with communities and private and public entities that want to be a part of the global movement to end gender-based violence in a generation.
