WALK THE TALK: HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS RECOGNISED FOR INITIATIVES TACKLING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
In 2019, Women’s Community Shelters launched their education initiative, Walk the Talk.
Over 2000 students across 15 schools were involved with the initiative that builds student awareness of domestic violence and women’s homelessness, particularly in their local area.
Walk the Talk is delivered in schools by Dannielle Miller and her team at Enlighten Education, who work to foster a discussion about positive relationships and build student action from there.
“The second part of the day is when we talk to students about the refuge in their area. We discuss why it exists and who might need it, before we ask them to consider what kind of support they could give,” Miller told Women’s Agenda earlier this year.
