Pledge to End Family Violence in Aotearoa NZ

Pledge With Us Today

Our vision is one we can all share in.

A family and whanau violence-free Aotearoa NZ.

Where all government parties and the wider population are on the same page – working together to solve our national, intergenerational legacy of family harm.

  • Where reports of women being affected by family violence are rare – not one in three.
  • Where we don’t have domestic violence statistics that are the worst in the OECD.
  • Where we know kids are not caught up in a vicious cycle they’re bound to repeat.

An Aotearoa NZ where we can all be safe.

MPs, Media, Government Agencies.
Sportspeople, CEOs, Essential Workers.
Fathers, Grandfathers, Sons, Brothers.
Mothers, Grandmothers, Daughters, Sisters.
People who use violence, who have been harmed by violence.
And those fortunate enough to have grown up safe and loved, who want everyone to enjoy this privilege.
All of us.

On 06 August, we are heading to Parliament Grounds with Male Survivors Aotearoa New Zealand and Gisborne’s Tauawhi Men’s Centre, to demand our MPs join together, and set a cross-party strategic goal to tackle family violence.
Please give us your online support.

Let’s join together in a national pledge to end family violence in Aotearoa NZ.

Our pledge is based on conscious, everyday actions and attitudes.
If you need help keeping it, just get in touch with us


I pledge to be:



Of my family’s right to live in safety.



To acknowledge my past violence and my commitment to live safely.


To assist anyone that needs help to be safe, to feel safe, to live safe.


Of people, places and events that support me to be a safe person.



To help and change.

It's 'normal'

for your partner to give you a fat lip for asking whether he got milk.
to hide from your dad after the All Blacks have lost.
for mum to wear a scarf in summer to hide the bruises on her throat.

This should never be normal.
