16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence

Hume City Council is standing with Respect Victoria in 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence from 25 November through 10 December.
The theme this year is Respect Women: Call It Out. This campaign asks Victorians to call out the drivers of family violence and violence against women. 
Simple steps to becoming an active bystander:
  • Notice the situation (be aware of your surroundings – that means looking up from your phone and making a conscious decision to be present)
  • Interpret the problem (do I recognise someone needs help?)
  • Feel compelled to act (see yourself as being part of the solution to help – consider the difference that your actions could make by being an active bystander
  • Know what to do (consider what you would do and when you would do it)
  • Intervene safely (take action but be sure to keep yourself and those around you safe).

 As part of the #16DaysofActivism campaign, Council is hosting the following two events:

  • Active Bystander Training (Craigieburn), Wednesday 27 November 2019 at 9.30am. Click here for more information.
  • Hume Women's Dinner (Broadmeadows), Monday 16 December at 6.30pm. Click here for more information.
