Macedon Ranges stands with Orlando

Cobaw Community Health is inviting the LGBTIQ community, friends and allies in the Macedon Ranges to sign a book of condolence for the victims of the recent tragedy in Orlando.

The condolence book will be located at Cobaw’s main office, 47 High Street Kyneton, from Monday 20 June to Wednesday 22 June between 9am-5pm. Not only is the book a way for people to show their support, it also provides the opportunity to say ‘no’ to any form of hate or violence.

Following circulation at VACountry in Bendigo and Cobaw in Kyneton, the book will be sent to an equality organisation in Orlando.

Margaret McDonald, Cobaw CEO believes that while the tragedy of Orlando has left many in grief and now in recovery, the secondary and tertiary effects of this event are yet to be seen.

“Now, more than ever, is the time for us to be aware of the things that divide us, to make an effort to focus on and build what can and does unite us. We urge anyone who is struggling at the moment to reach out to family and friends, or access the many resources available at Cobaw Community Health”.

For support contact the Cobaw Intake team on (03) 5421 1666.

Messages of condolence for the people of Orlando may also be submitted electronically through a register organised by the Victorian Government: http://www.vic.gov.au/condolences
