Today DVConnect attended the Premier’s White Ribbon Day Breakfast. The event focused on being an active bystander, and how the community can challenge attitudes and beliefs about gender-based violence. Panellists included Shaan Ross-Smith, Chair of DVConnect Board and Director of the MATE Program and Griffith University.
What can we do each day to create change and prevent domestic violence-related deaths? - Learn how to identify domestic and family violence campaigns.premiers.qld.gov.au/dosomething/ - Educate children from a young age about what healthy and respectful relationships look like - Encourage people who are experiencing domestic and sexual violence to seek help - Support women who have left violent relationships - Speak out against disrespectful behaviour
Together we can create a culture that sees the end of domestic and family violence and sexual assault.
