What is Rotary SAFE Families?
“Simply, Rotary SAFE Families is a primary prevention method of stopping abuse. Abuse being physical, financial, emotional, coercive control to women, men, elderly and our children.
With powerful messages of the “3RRR’s” of abuse prevention, Rotary SAFE Families provides the “What to do” if faced with a sense of helplessness when witnessing abuse.
We must NOT continue to be passive bystanders, and convincing ourselves: “This is not my problem!” “I must not interfere!”, “What can I do?”. Instead we must be informed and apply the 3RRR’s of prevention:
When was the last time you discussed abuse and elder abuse with your family, friends or work colleagues? Why is abuse a “taboo” subject.
In 1985, the Traffic Accident Commission, rolled out a campaign around drinking and driving: “If you drink’n drive … you’re a bloody idiot!” Do you remember? 36 years later, and millions of dollars of marketing, our culture has slowly changed and we know that drinking and driving is unacceptable and a crime. Abuse is also unacceptable and a crime!
