The recent attacks of femicide and gender-based violence that sparked nation-wide protests, has us
all so much more aware of the need for all people, on all levels of society, to take action and protect
our vulnerable members. From government taking notice and our president declaring gender-based
violence a national emergency, to the work the ASAP team and CBOs do every day out in our
remotest areas, we are uniting to make the much-needed changes.
We recognise the Mount Fletcher Magistrates Court for ensuring the imprisonment of a 36-year-old man
who raped a 14-year-old girl from one of our beneficiary communities. Our Child Care Coordinator

The state of our nation calls for grassroots workers to continue to fight against gender-based
violence.
