Ending the Violence in Indigenous Communities


TICKETS ARE $85 (LUNCH AND SPEECH).  THEY CAN ONLY BE PURCHASED DIRECTLY VIA THE National Press Club website.

Urgent action is need to address the epidemic of violence in Indigenous communities. Aboriginal women are between 37 and 80 times more likely to experience family violence than non-Indigenous women. For too long, the voices of the victims of domestic violence have been oppressed and silenced.

As part of the ongoing advocacy to address this issue, The Centre for Independent Studies (CIS) Indigenous Research Program is pleased to present the voices of three outspoken and fearless Aboriginal women, Professor Marcia Langton AM, Councillor Jacinta Price and Lawyer and businesswomen, Josephine Cashman who will talk about their personal experiences with family violence, and the policy and community levers that could rapidly decelerate high rates of violence.
