Good People Act Now is a youth led prevention of violence against women project working to make positive change in the Broadmeadows Community.  We train young people aged 16 – 30 on the issue and support them to develop leadership and advocacy skills to make a change on the issue in their local community.  Some of these prevention activities include:

  • Raising awareness on the issue of gender-based violence and promoting support service information for survivors and witnesses – with display stalls, presentations and on radio
  • Delivering Respectful Relationships activities at Banksia Gardens’ youth programs and in the community
  • Developing Bystander Action tools and resources
  • Performances and information at local schools and sporting clubs
  • Holding events such as the recent Youth Frum ‘Gender Equality is in Our Hands’ as part of the 16 Days Against Gendered Violence in November.

The GPAN training for our young leaders involves rich discussions with mentors and guest speakers on gender roles and stereotypes, respectful relationships, Bystander Action (how to challenge sexism), family violence and lots of valuable story sharing.

This enthusiastic group meets fortnightly and would love to welcome new members, both young people aged 16 – 30 as well as community supporters wishing to become mentors, who are committed to being local leaders on this global issue.
