16 Days of Allyship


Being an ally means taking practical actions to prevent gender-based violence. It also means listening to and believing survivors, and raising children who will continue a legacy of zero tolerance towards gender-based violence. You can learn more about practical things you can learn about or do to prevent gender-based violence. There are 16 actions, and we encourage you to commit to undertaking one a day during the 16 Days of Activism.

Visit GenWest's 16 Days Allyship project to find out more.  

If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence, help is available. You can call the 1800RESPECT (1800 737 732).  If you're in immediate danger, call the Police on 000 (triple zero).
