Blak On Repeat Market - A huge success Blak On Repeat Market - Group 1.jpg

The Aboriginal Family Violence and Prevention Legal Service Victoria (FVPLS Victoria) held the Blak On Repeat Free Clothing Market for Aboriginal women, on Friday 1 September 2017 at Djirra Aboriginal Women’s Place.

The market provided the perfect opportunity for the women FVPLS Victoria works with to pick out clothing to add to their wardrobe, as well as connect with other women and enjoy the activities on offer which included mini-manicures, a DJ and barbeque lunch. Women travelled from across the state, from as far away as Warrnambool, to join in the fun and pick out clothes for themselves and each other.

FVPLS Victoria held our annual NAIDOC Week morning tea on Tuesday 4 July 2017. It was an extra special celebration this year, as FVPLS Victoria Board Chair Marion Hansen announced the name of our Koori women’s place as Djirra. The announcement coincides with the theme of NAIDOC Week 2017 focusing on Our Languages Matter.

FVPLS Victoria CEO Antoinette Braybrook addressed a packed room, speaking on the importance of the day, which was reflected by the record crowd attendance. “Today is a landmark for our organisation, a step towards our long-held vision to create a one-of-a-kind community place for Koori women from across Victoria, including victims and survivors of family violence,” said Ms Braybrook.
