Domestic Violence Prevention Month - Aurukun
The theme "Unity in our Community" has been adopted for DVPM events planned in Aurukun throughout the month of May 2019.
Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is promoted annually in May in Queensland, aiming to raise community awareness of domestic and family violence and to send a clear message that violence will not be tolerated.
The Special Taskforce on Domestic and Family Violence in Queensland in its ‘Not Now, Not Ever’ report recommended that individuals, community groups and the private sector work together to help prevent domestic and family violence and support those affected.
The awareness raising events, projects or activities held during DFVP Month each year support the Queensland Government’s response to the ‘Not Now, Not Ever’ report. There are lots of ways individuals, families, and groups can be involved in the community to help end domestic and family violence. - https://www.qld.gov.au/community/getting-support-health-social-issue/support-victims-abuse/domestic-family-violence/domestic-family-violence-prevention-month
