What is Just Cause?

Just Cause is committed to bringing family and domestic violence out of the darkness and into the light. It is a social enterprise that has established itself as a positive, solution focused community awareness and prevention campaign for the Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence.

The campaign is centred around the annual International 16 Days of Activism commencing on 25 November and concluding on 10 December, it exists to spark conversations around the prevention of family and domestic violence. The messaging for 2022 has been strategically positioned to educate the community on the topical issue of coercive control and engage a wider audience on the importance of more kindness, equality, justice, respect, freedom in all relationships.

People often distance themselves from family violence – in reality, we all know people in unhealthy relationships. Just Cause shines a light on healthy relationships and encourages us all to model behaviours we would like to see more of in the world. If together we stand up, and speak up to shine a light on abuse in any form and become aware of the early signs of family and domestic violence, we will stop violence before it occurs.

We want you to know that all proceeds from Just Cause directly support people affected by family and domestic violence and fund our work in prevention. What more reason do you need to join our movement?
