Communities unite against domestic and family violence

The NO MORE campaign is a grassroots movement founded in 2006 by Charlie King OAM. The campaign places the responsibility for reducing family violence on men, recognising that they have the power to respect women and look after their families. The campaign has links with over 100 sporting teams nationally. In Arnhem Land, they have reduced domestic and family violence by 27.9 per cent in one year.

In November 2016, the NO MORE campaign brought the Rirratjingu dancers from North East Arnhem Land to Parliament House in Canberra to perform a Djan'kawu ceremony. Parliamentarians from the major parties linked arms in solidarity with the cause to reduce family violence.
