STEVE Fisher has been campaigning against sexual abuse for years, and now he wants to spread the word about respect.
The Devonport-based Beyond Abuse spokesman is hugely enthusiastic about The Advocate’s Show Some Respect campaign.
He aims to get the word out to his large network of contacts and hopes they will get their contacts involved as well.
“It’s one of those things I can’t support enough,” Mr Fisher said yesterday.
The campaign, which has received national exposure, grew from concern about abuse and assaults of teachers, police, hospital workers and emergency services personnel.
“I think no matter what happens in people’s lives, there’s no reason, especially for emergency services personnel, to be assaulted and so forth,” Mr Fisher said.
“I think it comes back to the way people are brought up and the values of society today.
“It’s something that needs looking at and changing.”
He said a public initiative like Show Some Respect was fantastic and would hopefully become a nationwide movement.
“It’s something that’s needed.
“I hope by doing this we can start to change community attitudes.
“I plan on letting everybody I come into contact with know what we’re trying to do and know what it’s all about, then encouraging them to use their networks and spread the word even further.”
The Show Some Respect pledge can be signed at The Advocate’s Devonport and Burnie offices, via the Show Some Respect Facebook page or via www.theadvocate苏州美甲培训学校.au
