We appreciate your interest in covering a story about domestic, family and sexual violence in Queensland. We believe that the more media report on this issue and the more we keep the conversation going, the more Queenslanders will be challenged to rethink their attitudes towards domestic, family and sexual violence.
Domestic and family violence and sexual assault is a violation of basic human rights. Everyone, regardless of their sex, religion, nationality, race, language, relationship, or living arrangements, has the right to feel safe, and be safe, in public and at home. As a journalist, you can play a powerful role in helping to build a society where fewer people find excuses for violent behaviour, fewer people blame victims, and where all members of the community are informed and empowered to take action to stop domestic and family violence.
