I was awarded the 2020 Peter Mitchell Churchill Fellowship to explore ways activists and universities can work together to prevent sexual violence on campus. I travelled to the USA, Canada and the UK from September to December 2022 to undertake this research opportunity to inform reforms in the Australian context.
I am the Founder of The STOP Campaign, and was the Director and Safeguarding Manager from 2018 to the end of 2023. The STOP Campaign is a grassroots organisation addressing sexual violence in Australian tertiary learning communities through empowerment, education, activism and awareness. The STOP Campaign are a volunteer-run intersectional feminist organisation that values intersectionality, integrity, respect and passion.
I was the Director of The STOP Campaign's project: Safe Response Toolkit: A Toolkit for Sexual Violence Victim-Survivors and Their Supporters (SRT). The SRT is a physical and online resource that provides information to victim-survivors and their supporters about how to safely respond to sexual violence disclosures and access support services in the ACT. The SRT provides clear, accurate and easily accessible information about the process of seeking support following an experience of sexual violence.
I co-lead The STOP Campaign's project: The College Program. The College Program is a series of education and advocacy workshops developed for tertiary students in residential halls which aim to prevent sexual violence and promote sexual wellbeing. The College Program is underpinned by The STOP Campaign’s core values of intersectionality, destigmatisation, and the importance of lived experience and peer facilitation to effectively engage young people and build safer communities.
