In this short video in honour of his mother, Mal highlights the often unseen and unspoken ripple effects of domestic violence on the lives of women, men and children. As a man, he reminds us that it is the responsibility of us all to act, and say No More Domestic Violence.
For Mal, the man in this video, this is a very personal story. At the same time it is a meaningful statement he has wanted to make. He has chosen to share his experience and learning in order to highlight the ongoing problem of domestic and family violence and to promote individual and community change.
We would encourage you to share and discuss in a mindful and respectful manner. Please take care in watching this video, it contains emotional content.
