Violence presents in many areas in our lives: through media, the big screen, online games, sport, school, workplaces and in the home.
Violence in our culture often goes unchallenged. We don’t speak about it and we don’t see it as a community responsibility. When violence is talked about, it is often glorified or seen as a solution.
Ipswich Says No to Violence (ISNTV) is a community initiated project, driven by the belief that the use of violence against women, men and children is unacceptable, and most of all preventable. ISNTV is a designated working group under the Community Safety Reference Group chaired by the Ipswich City Council. ISNTV is based on the successful Toowoomba Says No to Violence project.
ISNTV is run as a working group made up of a broad range of community members and we are hoping that you may join us as we promote the No To Violence message to the community through active involvement in and organisation of a variety of events during the year.
The aim of ISNTV is to tap into the aspirations and initiatives of the community to live in safe, violent-free communities. Broadly, we aim to:
Violence is preventable not inevitable.
