Sunshine Coast sports clubs launch Speak Up Project, telling violence against women #NotinMyClub
Sports clubs play a powerful role in challenging disrespectful attitudes and violent behaviour towards women. Over twelve months, the new Sunshine Coast Sports ‘Speak Up Project’ will empower clubs to develop a deep understanding of the complex causes and impacts of violence against women.
The project will seek to deliver a whole of sporting community collaboration driven by the Sunshine Coast White Ribbon Committee.
Through a series of educational workshops, community engagement and ongoing support, the project provides the tools and knowledge for clubs to implement year-round strategies to build safer and more inclusive clubs and communities.
Participating clubs include:
- Sunshine Coast Falcons
- Maroochydore Roos Football Club
- Alexandra Surf Club
- Noosa Rugby Club
- Sunshine Coast Lightning
- Maroochydore Surf Lifesaving Club
