Victoria Against Violence Campaign

In 2015 the Victorian Government launched the first ever Victoria Against Violence campaign with Clothesline Project on the steps of Victoria's Parliament.

The aim of the Campaign is to raise awareness of what individuals, families, organisations and government can do to prevent family violence. It provided the community with opportunities to participae in the discussion, attend events and support those who have experienced family violence.

T-Shirts from the Clothesline Project were displayed on the steps of Parliament House. The T-Shirts had heartfelt messages telling stories of real survivors, and sent a tangible message about the impact of family violence. It marked the start of 16 Days of Activism on 25th November until the 10th December and ran alongside the United Nation's globally recognised 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign.

200 of the T-Shirts were provided by WHIN, and onlookers and parliamentarians had an opportunity to make their own contribution to the display.

As Fiona Richardson, Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence said at the event, 'every Clothesline Project message comes from the Heart; every word is real; and every one demonstrates the community's commitment to ending family violence'.
