Just Think: We can end street violence - Adam Jaffrey is an Anti-Violence Evangelist for the non-profit group Step Back Think. For the past 3 years, Step Back Think has been using their youthful insight to put an end to street violence, in particular alcohol-fuelled violence. The organisation was founded after a close friend of the group was assaulted in Melbourne’s CBD and left with a permanent Acquired Brain Injury. This tragedy motivated the group to tackle the issue of street violence from many angles including legislative changes to liquor laws, partnering with national sporting icons and launching a pilot education program. Adam led the change in many of these programs and is excited to be involved with many new projects commencing in the coming months.
