Citizen is a not for profit arts and human rights organisation that provides people with the means to tackle challenges within their communities through education, empowerment and connection. We use the arts as a vehicle for social change and transformation to create a society that upholds human rights, where people have the means to tackle challenges in their communities and reach their potential.
NONE A WEEK
One Australian woman a week is killed by a current or former partner. Family violence is a leading cause of homelessness. Intimate partner violence causes more illness, disability and deaths than any other risk factor for women aged 25-44.
The None A Week campaign is a response to this national statistic from a Tasmanian perspective. This education campaign will support community action by empowering and amplifying the voices of people affected by family violence through the production of a documentary film called ‘One A Week’ funded by Tasmanian Community Fund. This documentary will be used to engage with people in Tasmania to take action to address family violence.
The Citizen Tasmania Action Group has been established to mobilise individuals and community groups across Tasmania to shift the statistic from ‘One A Week’ to None a Week. The action group is connecting with people in power, community leaders, thought leaders, companies and philanthropists to highlight the health and justice needs of Tasmanian women, children and young people experiencing family violence.
We will be launching the campaign on 10th March 2021 and as a community member we invite you to join the movement.
