About the event
Each month Neighbourhood Support New Zealand launches a national campaign where we focus on a theme or topic relevant to the time of year or which ties in with another extensive campaign in the community. The idea behind this is that by having one common mission, our members and supporters can come together at a national-level and focus on a single cause, allowing us to maximise our impact.
How members and supporters take part is completely up to the individual or group! You may want to simply share our posts on Facebook or organise an event / project that ties in with the theme. These campaigns are not meant to replace the work our organisations already perform, but rather provide another opportunity to raise awareness for important issues and show others what Neighbourhood Support is all about.
It’s Not OK - November 1st to 30th
Creating safer communities means ensuring that no one lives in fear of harm, whether out and about in a neighbourhood or in your own home.
For the month of November, we want to raise awareness and work together to end all forms of violence such as family harm, elder and child abuse, sexual assault, gang violence, and more. These victimisations affect us all and can have lasting effects that spill into our everyday lives including relationships, work and school.
To do your part this month, perhaps consider supporting a women’s refuge or work with Police in your area to host an information night on how to identify different types of abuse in your community.
This month’s campaign also coincides with White Ribbon Day on the 25th of November which is an internationally celebrated day that aims to prevent violence towards women.
