The FDV Pledge

Dec 11, 2023

This FDV pledge was written by Tjioe Ardiyanta, our Justice and Community Manager in Goldfields North, and was recited at the end of the White Ribbon Day march in Kalgoorlie.

It’s an emotional and pledge that anyone – and everyone – can take to stand up against family and domestic violence.

Our FDV Pledge

I pledge as a person to stand up against violence, to be a voice for the silent. To break the silence.

I will not condone or stay silent in the face of abuse. For every individual I’ll stand up and refuse.

I will challenge the attitudes that perpetuate harm, and in my actions respect and equality will form.

I’ll strive to be a role model for those around. In a world of safety, respect and understanding we’ll be found.

I pledge to listen, support and believe. To create a world where dignity and love achieve.

No longer will I be a passive observer, but an active force, a voice of change, forever.

On this White Ribbon Day I take a stand to end violence, to protect, hand-in-hand.

For a future where respect is the norm, I pledge today on White Ribbon Day, to transform.

Hope Community Services runs two family and domestic violence hubs in Western Australia; the Mara Pirni Healing Place in Kalgoorlie and the South East FDV Healing Service in Armadale.
