Take the First Step Campaign
In 2021, as part of the Hume Family Violence Peer Education Project, 12 women from diverse cultural backgrounds worked with local filmmakers to make a short video empowering women in abusive relationships to seek help. The Take the First Step campaign seeks to enhance the impact of this video by encouraging newly arrived women who are at risk of, or experiencing family violence to visit NCLC’s website where they will find clear, dedicated information about their rights in Australia and how to make an appointment to see a lawyer. These resources are available in English and in Arabic here.
NCLC urges our sector partners to share the Take the First Step campaign throughout their own networks. Below you can download social media tiles for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as a campaign poster, which can be printed and posted around your office.
