The One Million Stars to End Violence Project

Connections is excited to be participating in the One Million Stars Project to End Violence - Weaving communities of courage to end violence.

This movement was created by Maryann Talia Pau and aims to place a spotlight on violence during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Maryann picked stars as the symbol for her project as they represent light, courage and solidarity. Maryann’s aim is 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.” (Maryann Talia Pau)

Connections is aiming to contribute 5,000 stars to the campaign.

Every woven star reminds us that we have to make peace and safe spaces and that it doesn't just happen.” (Maryann Talia Pau)

We encourage everyone to get on board this wonderful initiative. For more information visit
