Join Hope for Humanity #safefamilies anti-violence campaign
DOMESTIC violence is a scourge affecting communities across the state, including the Fraser Coast.
Hope for Humanity on the Fraser Coast is hoping to raise awareness of domestic violence and asking people to put their hand up and take a stand.
The group is urging Fraser Coast residents and businesses to post on social media with the tag #safefamilies and say why they stand against domestic violence.
The Chronicle reporters and staff made their own pledge earlier this week.
I stand against domestic and family violence because…
"No man, woman or child deserves to live their life looking over their shoulder." #safefamilies
- Matthew McInerney
"Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home." #safefamilies
- Lea Emery
"We all deserve better." #safefamilies
- Clementine Norton
"It is time to break the cycle of family abuse." #safefamilies
