Family Violence is a National Emergency

It’s clear; family violence is a national emergency. Please support A Fair Agenda’s latest campaign to call upon the Australian Government to lead an urgent intervention on family violence homicides. 

The past two weeks have seen horrific incidents of family violence across the country. In Victoria, a man allegedly killed a former partner in Sunshine. On Easter Sunday a man allegedly killed his two daughters in Victoria. Last week, a man in Western Sydney allegedly killed his partner, and on the weekend another man allegedly killed his wife in the Northern Territory. And these are just the high profile incidents.

Tragically, these events are not an anomaly. Family violence in Australia is rife.

We can’t allow the violence to go on – that’s why A Fair Agenda is joining Domestic Violence NSW’s calls for the Australian Government to lead an urgent intervention on family violence homicides. Make your voice heard!

Join the call for the Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, to lead immediate action to address family violence fatalities – starting with ensuring best practice death review processes are established and appropriately resourced across the country.
