NON-VIOLENCE IS CONTAGIOUS

WAVSS has just launched our new Community Campaign for DV Awareness Month 2016 … “Non-violence is contagious - Give it to your friends”. Our hope is to raise awareness in a positive and subtle way to help reduce cultural and socio-economic stereotyping/discrimination and instigate social change through community activism; kick-starting a positive movement in DFV awareness and violence prevention that could be locally and globally “contagious”.

 

With support from a number of short videos plus regular and repeated messaging, we hope the campaign will represent and be used by any and all multicultural communities, and any and all DFV services and sectors spreading from Logan to the Redlands, across the state, throughout Australia and beyond.

Become a Community Messenger
Become a Community Activist

If you choose to become a COMMUNITY MESSENGER, your commitment is to identify yourself as non-violent, wearing the message (T-shirt, wristband etc) and spreading the word  --- “Non-violence is contagious - Give it to your friends” .  Spreading the message could be through social media, photos (selfies), family and friend activities, workplaces and neighbourhood groups.

If you choose to become a COMMUNITY ACTIVIST, you undertake a much bigger commitment to be a Non-violence Leader in your local community, undertaking cutting-edge sector-based training including bystander education (like the Griffith University Mentors in Violence Prevention program) and spreading the word through informed activism and specific programs across the community that enact eldership, stewardship and mentorship, youth and parental role modelling and ‘Street Guardianship’ [Non-violent street support, signage, awards].
