CURTIN University students have developed a Victim to Victor campaign to change the way people think about those who have gone through family or domestic violence.

The nine students –Sebastian Tarrant, Mason Burton, Claire Wilson, Emily Schon, Sophie David, Daniella Chadinha, Lachlan Goddard, Aidan Richards and Israel Nai – aim to break the intergenerational cycle of violence.

“Whether or not we have personally experienced the issue, we must all alter our perceptions from one of pity and remorse to one of empowerment and strength,” Mr Tarrant said.

To support the campaign,

  1. Take a photo with the Victim to Victor board or overlay their customised Instagram gif on a pre-existing photo
  2. Post your photo to any social media platform with the hashtag #victimtovictor
  3. Nominate others to participate in the movement

The students will launch the campaign at the annual Path of Hope Ball on Saturday, May 18 from 7pm at Crown Towers.
