Can you spare 30 minutes during your lunch break on June 10th, 2014 to help highlight the daily reality of domestic violence in Ireland ?

On June 10th, SAFE Ireland, the national organisation for domestic violence services, will launch its annual One Day Census – a one day count of the number of women and children who looked for accommodation and/or support from a domestic violence service on just one day (November 5th, 2013).

On that one, ordinary day, that number was over 450 women and over 220 children.

SAFE Ireland wants to do something simple, but ambitious - to take a picture of that number of women in one place, in one frame.

Come along. Bring your friends, sisters, mothers, children and work colleagues to Meeting House Square, Temple Bar at 1:15 pm.  The photographer won’t keep you more than 30 minutes.  And you’ll be part of an iconic image that can start to transform Ireland’s response to violence against women and children.

Email info@safeireland to let us know if you and others can attend.
