‘Many Voices’ aims to raise awareness and provoke the thoughts of listeners and members from a range of different cultural backgrounds and communities to reflect and amplify the issues of domestic and family violence in their communities. Through the collection of many different voices from diverse communities, ‘Many Voices’ encourages communities to be further educated, and empowers individuals to participate in positive prevention strategies within their communities.
This project has been made possible through the assistance of the
Department of Justice & Attorney General Safe & Diverse Communities Grant.
Translated community service announcements will be available below soon, covering many topics in relation to Sexual, Domestic & Family Violence. This page will be updated periodically with new audio and social media resources for use within your communities.

Many Voices was informed by the assistance of two experts in the field of Domestic & Family Violence; Michael Jeh and Sharon Orapeleng.
Michael Jeh is a former first-class cricketer and Oxford Blue who is now heavily involved in running education programs around gender violence prevention. One of the things that really drives him is a project called A Few Good Men. It is essentially a men’s revolution, a movement aimed at getting men to take total ownership of the way we treat women. He is also a White Ribbon Ambassador, speaking up and acting to prevent men’s violence against women. His clients include professional sporting teams, schools, universities, corporates, and prisons.
Victoria Morgansen caught up with Michael Jeh to discuss some of the topics listed above.
Another component to this project was to collect creative contributions in the form of spoken word, music, affirmations; pretty much anything speaking to the topic of Domestic and Family Violence.
If you would like to contribute to this project yourself and become one of the many voices speaking out about Domestic and Family Violence, please use the form below. Submissions of all kinds are welcome, these could be a written poem, a recorded statement or a fully produced music track; many voices will be heard!
