The One Punch Can Kill campaign was spurred by a number of senseless fatal assaults in Queensland. In 2007, through the hard work of a number of volunteers, many of whom had themselves lost a loved one through a fatal assault, One Punch Can Kill gained recognition within the media, courtrooms, and on the streets. A number of information evenings were held where volunteers handed out information to late-night party-goers, urging them to keep safe and to walk away from violent situations.
Later in that same year, the Queensland Government adopted the phrase and created a range of advertisements – the first of their kind in Queensland – targeting young men and women who may find themselves in potentially violent situations.
QHVSG, was supported in its efforts to raise awareness for the OPCK campaign by the Queensland Government for a number of years, and during this time a range of merchandise, advertisements, events and promotions incorporating the OPCK slogan were communicated broadly throughout Queensland.
Victims’ representatives can be made available to speak at your employment, school, employment or conference. If you would like to add a special element to your next community or educational event CONTACT US to see how we can help.
