Safe and Free from Violence

The announcement of the federal election is rapidly approaching.

You can bet they are having a lot of debates and heated conversations about the most important issues to allocate funds to. Within that noisy, crowded environment we need to make sure that funding to address the domestic violence crisis is high on their priority list.

Our best way to do that? To show them that an overwhelming number of voters care deeply enough to pick up the phone and flood Bill Shorten’s office with calls about it.

Will you pick up the phone and let Bill Shorten’s office know that we want him to invest in the services needed to ensure a safer future for women?

Hi, my name is [your name]

I’m calling to urge the Opposition Leader to commit to increasing Labor's investment in addressing the family violence crisis. 

I was glad to hear of last week's $60 million commitment, but I’m concerned that the full range of services needed to address this issue aren’t funded to meet demand.

Will you please pass along my concerns to the Opposition Leader - and let him know I support Labor not only matching, but exceeding the Government's recent $328 million commitment?

Thank you.
