About the event
In this wide-ranging discussion, we will explore how people of different cultures, faiths and backgrounds can best work together to prevent men’s violence against women, advance gender equality and advocate for change in policies and attitudes that impact negatively on refugee and migrant women.
White Ribbon Australia and Harmony Alliance have a memorandum of understanding that establishes an ongoing consultative relationship regarding the issues and impact of gender-based violence in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), migrant, and refugee communities in Australia. Together, we support National Unity Week’s goals of building intercultural solidarity, celebrating the beauty of diversity and working towards an Australia where everyone is able to belong, contribute and thrive.
