We do Respect is a community campaign designed to empower individuals, to speak up when they see or hear disrespectful and inappropriate behaviour - at work, at home and in social settings.
The campaign aims to increase bystander actions in our community, by providing a safe response for individuals when they hear disrespectful comments or statements.
We all have a role to play in creating an inclusive and equitable Wagga Wagga for all. It's about challenging casual sexism, gender stereotypes and acts of disrespect - speak up and say "In our city, We do Respect".
To support you in utilising We do Respect, we have developed an additional four videos to assist you in having conversations with people around you.
Whether you're a sporting club, a workplace, an after-school program or a group of friends, there is something everyone can be doing to be active bystanders in the community.
The ambassadors speak from their experience and provide practical tips on how you can take action in your own way.

It might be difficult to call out a friend, colleague, or a stranger but the more we do it, the more we set a standard that disrespect shouldn’t be tolerated or ignored. In Wagga Wagga #WedoRespect.
