Vision of 80/80 in 2031 – an open letter

06 September 2021

Following on from the “Family, domestic, and sexual violence services 10 years from today: Where do we want to be in 2031? Influencing Australia’s response now” webinar, the NSW Branch has signed an open letter to all Australian governments.

With a vision for 2031 of 80% less domestic, family and sexual violence and 80% of survivors being supported to recover from trauma, over 100 community leaders and prominent Australians have signed a call for action. They agree we need a whole of community response to reducing the domestic and family violence emergency – with ambitious targets and clear focused actions.

From the University of Wollongong’s Vice-Chancellor, to ALDI’s CEO – the range of signatories says it all. Recommending actions that, if incorporated into next National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and Children and implemented urgently, can materially reduce men’s violence against women, and support women’s recovery from trauma.
