About the Campaign
The Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Campaign was activated upon this resolution of General Convention of Synod, the highest decision-making body in the Lutheran Church of Australia:
That the Convention of Synod reaffirms its condemnation of all forms of violence in the family and authorises [General Church Council] to commit resources for a church-wide campaign to address the prevalence of Family Violence amongst us, which may include sharing of resources, education initiatives and the provision of pastoral care to the survivors of violence, as well as the perpetrators of abuse.
