Marking the Club’s fourth annual Carlton Respects game when the Blues face the Demons at the MCG on Sunday, the Club this week launched a three-tiered awareness raising campaign with education at the forefront.
With early education playing a pivotal role in preventing violence before it occurs, this year’s campaign asks, ‘what are we teaching our children?’ highlighting the important work carried out by the Carlton Respects Education Program.
Supporters will be urged to collect a free orange flag as they enter the ground on the day and ‘fly their flag for equality’ throughout the match. Pre-game, there will also be a dedicated 30 seconds for fans to wave their flag in support of gender equality.
Sharing the Club’s passion for championing the cause, MC Labour has expanded its partnership with Carlton Respects, signing on to become the community program’s first major partner.
RING OF HONOUR: GEOFF SOUTHBY
Carlton’s two-time premiership player Geoff Southby will be inducted into Carlton’s Ring of Honour on Sunday afternoon, before the Blues take on the Demons in the Round 9 clash. Southby played 268 games between 1971 and 1984 and was crowned the Club’s best and fairest in 1971 and the premiership year of ‘72. He’s a legend in Carlton’s Hall of Fame and was named in the Blues’ Team of the Century.
