Unite Against Family Violence
We are proudly supporting the Unite Against Family Violence alliance’s current campaign urging all political parties to unite against family violence.
The alliance of Domestic Violence Victoria, No To Violence, Gender Equity Victoria and CASA Forum launched the campaign recently in the lead up to the forthcoming Victorian Government state election.
They have come together to call on all political parties to make a formal bipartisan commitment to funding and implementing all 227 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence. More than 150 people attended the alliance’s election forum, held in Melbourne on October 24, along with The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre’s CEO, Helen Bolton.
The alliance’s key messages are:
- The Royal Commission into Family Violence delivered a world-first roadmap with 227 recommendations for how we can build a system that will keep women and children safe and prevent violence before it begins.
- Family violence is our state’s biggest crime, health, economic and human rights problem.. We have a roadmap. We know how to tackle this issue and we want to get it done.
- We are asking all political parties to commit to long-term support for funding full implementation of every recommendation handed down by the Royal Commission into Family Violence.
