Reverse the funding cuts to Ruby Gaea Darwin Centre Against Rape
This petition made change with 407 supporters!
Ruby Gaea saves lives. Ruby Gaea is the only service in Darwin that provides specialised counselling and support to women and children who have experienced sexual assault. The NT Government has halved funding to this vital community service, despite the NT having one of the highest rates of sexual assault in Australia. The NT Deputy Chief Minister, Dave Tollner, when asked if he would comment on whether rape crisis counselling should be exempt from the cost-saving measures replied that he would not. "I have my personal views there" he said. "I am not aware of the all of the information around that and the services that they provide."
Let's tell the NT Government why Ruby Gaea is so important, and implore them to reverse the decision to cut funding.
