Heritage Bank joins the Act as 1 Campaign
If you’ve visited a Heritage Bank branch during May you would have noticed posters for the “Act as 1” campaign.
Now in its third year, this campaign by the Queensland Government challenges the attitudes and behaviors that allow domestic and family violence to occur by urging everyday people to take action.
Heritage Bank CEO, Mr John Minz is a long term advocate for domestic and family violence prevention and a previous winner of Australia’s CEO Challenge race.
“Domestic and family violence affects women, men, children, families, neighbours, workplaces and communities,” said Mr Minz.
“During May thousands of Queenslanders will Act as 1 against domestic and family violence at events across the state during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.
“The ‘Act as 1’ campaign gives light to the problem by encouraging everyday people to look out for the signs of domestic and family violence and provides ways they can help, or people they can talk to.
“Heritage Bank is proud to display the ‘Act as 1’ posters throughout May and we hope that the message stays with people long after the posters come down.”
The “Act as 1” campaign relies on people from all sectors to come together and take action to show domestic and family violence is never acceptable.
