How you can get involved in the call to Get Smarter, Not Tougher on Youth Crime

enews 200223 special announcement get smarter not tougher

On 28th January 2023, an open letter to the Queensland Parliament – ‘Stop Youth Crime – Get Smarter Not Tougher’ – was published as an advertorial by the Courier Mail. Over 40 organisations and an additional 20 individuals quickly submitted their logos and names to serve as signatories to the letter. Since then, PeakCare has received many requests from people wishing to add their logos and/or names to the list of signatories. In response to these requests, this webpage has been created for that purpose.

How to add your logo and/or name to the list of signatories

As soon as possible, please email Lindsay Wegener (lwegener@peakcare.org.au) requesting that your organisation’s logo and/or your name be added to the list of signatories.

If you wish to have your logo included, please attach a copy of your logo (preferably in jpeg format) and indicate that you are properly authorised by your organisation to make this request.

If you wish to have your name added, please specify your preferred title.

If you share the views expressed within the letter, this is your opportunity to make your views known.  The more logos and names that are collected the better in conveying the strength of opinion held about ‘getting smarter not tougher’.
