Intervening Safely

If you're witnessing an abusive or potential abusive event, before you get involved, ask yourself if it’s safe.  If the situation is already physically violent or looks like it’s escalating quickly, don’t directly intervene. Call the Police.  The only effective bystander intervention is a *nonviolent one*.  If you try to “rescue” a victim or fight off an abuser, you’ll not only be endangering yourself, but the abuser might take out their anger on the victim later making them possibly more isolated and less likely to seek help later on.

Local Government Toolkit launched

The It’s not OK campaign has launched a Local Government Toolkit to support local bodies to reduce family violence across New Zealand.

Second Time Around

I don't know when I lost myself.
When the beatings became normal,
I forgot my name.
