250,000 stars from WA

One Million Stars Project
One Million Stars to End Violence is a love and peace filled community project.
These beautiful stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism. The Million Stars project is an opportunity for us to be light and hope in the world and to make something beautiful and powerful together.
We know that domestic violence, violence on our streets, racism and harassment is happening RIGHT NOW and often it is difficult to know what to do to help those who are suffering and to help prevent it.
The Million Stars project is an opportunity to remind each other that we CAN do something about it and not feel paralysed by all that is broken with humanity.
Their short term goal is for communities to weave one million stars to display at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
WEaveWA is also a love and peace filled community project and our target is for West Australians to contribute 250,000 stars!
