In a message from the Co-Directors, Associate Professors Janet Fanslow and Robyn Dixon say:

"We are committed to continuing to identify the best available local and international evidence and strategies for violence prevention and response, and working to make these as widely and easily accessible as we can.

... We acknowledge the dedication of all who continue to work towards a safer and more just world. We look forward to continuing to support you, from whatever platform you work from."
