'We're better than that' Campaign
“We’re Better Than That” is a video series campaign created to promote respect and healthy relationships, and encourage men to be active bystanders when they witness behaviour that condones and contributes to violence in our communities. The videos are funded by the Central and Eastern Sydney PHN, and made in partnership with the Eastern Suburbs Domestic Violence Network, The Hope Believe Shine Foundation, and Randwick, Waverley, Woollahra and Bayside Councils.
