Safe and Equal, No to Violence and Sexual Assault Services Victoria have partnered to ‘Vote Against Violence’ for the 2022 state election .
Family violence and sexual assault sector specialists Safe and Equal, No to Violence, and Sexual Assault Services Victoria have partnered to eliminate family and sexual violence in Victoria. By visiting key electorates that say urgently need to prioritise the safety of women and children they have aimed to hold major parties to account this Victorian Election.
Family and sexual violence continue to be some of the most pressing social issues affecting Victorians and have been at the forefront of public consciousness since the 2016 Royal Commission into Family Violence.
The three organisations have combined advocacy efforts to develop a joint election platform, which calls on the Victorian government to prioritise four key asks:
1. Invest in the specialist workforces who support those affected by violence
2. Build a thriving sector that meets the needs of all people affected
3. Address housing as a barrier to safety for victim survivors
4. Improve justice and legal outcomes for people affected by family and sexual violence
As part of their joint ‘Vote Against Violence’ partnership, peak bodies Safe and Equal, No to Violence and Sexual Assault Services Victoria host a series of events with candidates across key Victorian electorates in October and November.
These meetings are an opportunity to hear from candidates about how they intended to address family and domestic violence in their communities.
