We’ll be discussing what coercive control is and how primary prevention is the only way to reduce the overall prevalence of family violence. Criminalisation of coercive control is not enough—we need prevention at the heart of national solutions and in the next National Plan to end violence against women and children.

Please join us on Thursday 25 November at 11am for our online session facilitated by WIRE CEO Julie Kun with guest speakers Amy Prendergast (Respect Victoria), Talie Star (Family violence victim survivor advocate) and Adele Murdolo (Migrant Women’s Health Service). After the webinar why not join the Walk against Family Violence which will be held in the afternoon.
