Vision, photo and audio opportunities are available at the candle lighting vigil for victims and survivors of family and domestic violence tonight. In Brisbane the vigil happens at the Roma St Parklands Amphitheatre from 5.30pm.
At least one woman is killed every week in Australia by an intimate partner. Children are also victims in these homicides.
