Join the Call to Action for all NSW political parties to End Gendered Violence
We believe every person has the right to be safe and to live free from violence in New South Wales. This includes children and young people, people of all genders and identities, backgrounds, cultures, abilities, and ages. But right now, this isn’t the case.
In NSW, numbers of domestic violence assaults have increased annually in the past five years and sexual violence cases have increased by 21% in 2021, making this the fastest growing crime reported in NSW.
By signing this pledge, you are calling for action to end gendered violence and create a safe state for all in NSW.
We call on you to commit to:
Will you act to end gendered violence in NSW by acting on these recommendations for change?
A call to action has been developed by NSW Women’s Alliance which brings together a range of organisations working with women, children and LGBTIQ+ people experiencing sexual, domestic, and family violence.
By signing the call to action, you are supporting the Action to End Gendered Violence platform and its recommendations.
We also ask you call on members of all political parties to commit to Action to End Gendered Violence. For a list of members see here.
The NSW Women’s Alliance acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia, including the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate, the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We recognise that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have lived and cared for Country for over 65,000 years and continue to do so; this land was never ceded. We respect all Aboriginal Elders past, present and emerging.
