#R4Respect encourages the whole community to foster healthier relationships among young people. It is widely supported by Logan businesses, organisations, community groups and government departments.
Through #R4Respect, young people will create messages and share them through digital media like Instagram and Facebook to reach other young people.
Messages will be consistent with national anti-violence campaigns, and will focus on four themes:
- We all have the right to be free of abuse and violence.
- Respect means being fair and valuing others as equals.
- Value diversity. Value culture. Celebrate difference.
- Negotiate through disagreements. Don’t hit out.
