As an elite sports club, we have the responsibility and opportunity to make a positive impact in society. Carlton Respects awareness raising campaigns utilise the Club’s platform and reach to spread the message of gender equality for the prevention of violence against women.
Every year, one Carlton home game in the AFL and AFLW fixture is dedicated to Carlton Respects with a goal to:
- Raise awareness about the importance of gender equality in helping prevent violence against women.
- Promote the Road to Respect school program and the positive impact education can have in creating a safer future.
- Raise funds for the Road to Respect program so we can continue to grow our offerings.
16 Days of Activism
16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence calls for the elimination of all forms of violence against women. Commencing on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November) and concluding on International Human Rights Day (10 December), the 16 Days of Activism campaign utilises orange as the international colour of harmony, as a symbol of a future free from violence against women and girls.
Carlton Football Club acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which IKON Park is located, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. The Club also acknowledges and pays its respects to their Elders past and present and the Traditional Owners of the many lands on which we play our great game.
