Ramingining has joined the growing community movement in saying ‘No More’ to domestic violence.
Driven by East Arnhem Regional Council Youth Worker Mentor Will Gee in partnership with the NT Police, Ramingining locals were joined by No More Founder and domestic violence advocate Charlie King, members of the local football teams, RJCP, ALPA, AFLNT, the local health clinic and the school, linking arms in support of the campaign and saying ‘No More’ to family and domestic violence.
In collaboration with the four teams in the EARC Football League, a domestic violence action plan was developed and a committee made up of traditional owners and the players formed, with the committee overseeing the implementation and engagement of the plan moving forward. Importantly, male students from year five onwards attended and participated in the day.
For Council and community members, it was a great opportunity to have Charlie King and his team in Ramingining to reinforce the community safety work that is taking place and bringing residents, stakeholders and importantly our youth together to discuss this very real problem. Across the nation the issue of family and domestic violence is not going away. The aim of the No More campaign is to reduce family and domestic violence by engaging men in the sporting community at both the grassroots and national level. Ramingining is proud to be a part of this campaign.
