Influential Voices Join Ruah’s 16 Days ‘What’s Your Piece’ Campaign

Community leaders come together: contributing their piece of the puzzle in ending family and domestic violence 

Throughout the 16 days in WA campaign and beyond, we have joined forces with various community thought leaders to demonstrate commitment to building a safer community for women. Ruah’s ‘What’s Your Piece’ Campaign aims to unite the community to take action on family and domestic violence. 

Featured in the video was Tracy Vo (News Presenter, Channel 9 News), Brooke Blurton (First Nations Creator and Advocate), Allan Ball (former National Director of White Ribbon Australia), Dr. Sandy Chong (Board Director, United Nations Association of Australia), the Hon. Dr. Anne Aly (Minister for Early Childhood Education & Youth), and the Hon. Peter Quinlan (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Western Australia), Bronwyn Bate (CEO and Founder of Mettle Gifts), Tina Fielding (Writer / Actor and LGBTQIA+ Disability Advocate), Christina Matthews (CEO, WA Cricket Association), Jane Bennett (Chairperson, Ruah Giving Circle), and our very own Debra Zanella (CEO of Ruah).

By asking, ‘What’s your piece?’ Ruah hopes to inspire individuals and organisations to take everyday actions. When we act collectively, momentum can gather in addressing the often taboo topic of family and domestic violence.  

The video encourages us to see family and domestic violence from a number of angles. From recognising the disproportionate impacts of violence on our First Nations women, to ensuring women living with disability are safe, to understanding the impact of violence on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to listening to the voices of Lived Experience when it comes to social policy and community action. Other steps included stepping up as a male ally to be part of the solution, having conversations with your children about inclusivity and respect, or taking actions to foster a safe, accessible, and more equitable workplace. Each step can create ripple effects of positive change and every action counts, no matter how big or small. 

We invite you to join us in our quest to end violence against women and children, by watching and sharing our videos, and thinking about what piece of the puzzle you might help solve.
