Say NO to family violence

Ms GRALEY (Narre Warren South) — (Question 6529) My question is to the Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence and concerns my Say No to Family Violence awareness campaign. I ask the minister to provide some information about how we can extend our campaign, including consideration of the inclusion of a vigil.

 The minister generously agreed to launch our campaign at Kambrya College earlier this year. We have since seen sporting clubs, community centres, support agencies, places of worship and other schools join our campaign. Many of our Say No to Family Violence campaign banners are now proudly displayed across the community.

 A vigil would acknowledge the outstanding work of those who have already taken part and be a wonderful opportunity for all of us to pay our respects to those who have suffered or been lost to family violence. Together we can continue to shine a light on the devastating impact family violence has on our community.
