No More Deaths - campaign update
What is the No More Deaths campaign?
The No More Deaths campaign is an alliance of statewide and local organisations working with women and children, community legal services and men’s behaviour change programs across Victoria - calling for family violence to lead the agenda in the November 2014 State Election.
These leading family violence organisations are calling on the state’s political parties to commit to wide-ranging policies across housing, justice, police, health, education and other portfolios to keep women and children safe in Victoria.
The members of the No More Deaths coalition are:
- Domestic Violence Victoria
- Federation of Community Legal Centres
- No To Violence
- Women’s Legal Service Victoria
- Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria
- Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service
- Women with Disabilities Victoria.
