In a groundbreaking initiative, Liverpool is set to host the inaugural Ecumenical LOUDfence Event on Saturday 9 March 2024. This transformative event invites individuals from all walks of life to come together and raise their voices against various forms of harm and abuse.

The day kicks off with a Non-Denominational Blessing and ribbon-tying ceremony at the Anglican Cathedral. Participants will then embark on a symbolic walk along Hope Street, culminating in another powerful ribbon-tying ceremony and Prayer Service at the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Open to everyone who has experienced any type of harm or abuse, including but not limited to domestic, faith-based, sexual, emotional, and financial abuse, the event stands as a beacon of solidarity. Whether you are a survivor or know someone who has faced such challenges, all are encouraged to attend and lend their support.

By tying ribbons, attendees will symbolise their support for victims and survivors of abuse, fostering an atmosphere of understanding and compassion. The event aims to provide a platform for those who have suffered to share their experiences in a positive and supportive environment, assuring them that their voices will be heard and respected.
