Commonwealth Says NO MORE is pleased to share our ongoing public service campaigns.
The Commonwealth Says NO MORE Campaign is designed to implement initiatives that work on the prevention of domestic violence and sexual abuse as part of wider efforts to achieve the 2030 sustainable development goals.
This campaign is designed to help member countries record accurate data on the prevalence of violence, deliver grassroots projects, train community leaders, educate bystanders’ responses, and provide awareness resources.
It is the first of its kind in the Commonwealth and provides opportunities for sustained change addressing violence against women and girls.
Peace in the home: ending domestic violence together is an exemplary initiative which aims to build a coalition of governments, businesses, civil society and citizens committed to ending domestic violence and achieving peace in the home. The pivotal question is, how can there be peace in the world without peace in the home?
Critical to this is how can peace in the home be achieved? The approach is to do so by collaborating with local projects in designing and delivering training and awareness campaigns about gender-based violence, sexual assault, and domestic abuse, along with perpetrator and bystander intervention. These programmes are important early steps needed in combating violence, in creating consciousness about the impact of violence, and for enabling societies and each person in each community to think about the full extent of the notion of peace.
