HUNDREDS have so far shown their support in the fight against domestic violence by swearing the White Ribbon Day Oath in Hervey Bay.
Survivors of domestic violence, police and various community organisations have joined forces to raise awareness of the social sickness which today alone, will see more than 20 women walk up the steps of the Hervey Bay Court House to take out an order against a violent partner.
Hervey Bay Police Sergeant Hayley Skyring said she had printed out 100 swearing of the oath forms ahead of Tuesday's event but by 8.30am, she had already sent for back-up.
Families are invited to swear the oath at the stand at Bunnings Hervey Bay which is also offering a sausage sizzle, ribbons, wrist bands and balloons.
