White Ribbon Activism: Angle 1:

A new program starting in Cairns today will teach people how to intervene in domestic violence situations.

25 people are taking part in the three-day “Mentors in Violence Prevention” program at Central Queensland University’s Cairns campus.

Tomorrow’s also White Ribbon Day.

Professor Annabel Taylor from the Queensland Center for Domestic and Family Violence says the program complements the State Government’s ‘Not Now, Not Ever’ report.

Annabel Taylor: “That report urged communities to take responsibility for and to address domestic and family violence in their own communities. Now, people need the resources and the knowledge to understand how to do that. ‘Mentors in Violence Prevention’ is one of those programs which is aimed at supporting communities to develop responses in their own small community.”
