STAND WITH US FOR A WORLD WITH MORE
By sharing messages of hopes and dreams and a world with more, Just Cause continues to encourage people to celebrate healthy relationships and to model behaviours they would like to see more of in the world. Given we all know people in unhealthy relationships, we invite you to share your personal expressions of a world with more kindness, respect, justice, and equality to spark conversations that resonate and are shared further, they will evoke thought and inspire change. They may even save a life.
If each one of us plays our part, community awareness will skyrocket across all generations. We will reach a stage where social norms around respect are strengthened, individuals become accountable, and violence is deemed unacceptable.
Enjoy these insightful quotes from our passionate ambassadors- what values do you want in your relationships?
WHAT DO HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS FEEL LIKE?
‘I believe equality helps all people in relationships feel safe, respected and loved’.
'Healthy for me is to feel seen, free and understood. Seen, where my needs and opinions are as important as the person I'm in a relationship with. Free, to express who I am. And understood, where I know we are both happy to compromise and embrace change as we grow.'
'Kindness for me is how my husband and I work together to co-parent our boys and share the household tasks which enables both of us to be a part of the workforce.'
‘To me, a healthy relationship is where both people feel equally respected.' 'I agree, and I also think a healthy relationship is where both people feel supported.’
'Trust and Support in a relationship means the goals of each person are supported and feelings, friendships, activities and opinions are respected.'
WHAT WOULD A WORLD WITH MORE LOOK LIKE?
‘I think I would like to see more equality, I think if you have that everything else will spread out from there – kindness and humanity will come with it.’
‘I want a world with more dancing. I want a world with more fun. I want a world with more stories, more play and more love.'
'I hope to see a world with more equality and appreciation for diversity'
'I want to live in a world with more justice and honesty.‘
'I want a world with more opportunities.'
Every Just Cause product also features an informative tag to educate all generations. When we are aware of what we deserve in our relationships we all become part of the solution to prevent family and domestic violence.
We encourage you to FIND OUT MORE about healthy relationships. We have a downloadable information sheet about the equality wheel that really sums up the importance of mutuality and respect in every relationship. There are so many other resources online, take some time to discover what resonates with you and enjoy sparking conversations to remind everyone you know of what they deserve in their relationships. It feels great!
We would like to thank our ambassadors for their kindness and generosity, in giving their time and creativity to Just Cause. We are overwhelmed by their enthusiasm and passion to share their healthy relationships and to inspire others. Together we can all create a world with more kindness, equality, justice, respect and freedom.
