Political Debate on Family Violence - Video & Audio
Friday 5th September 6-7.30pm
The Dunedin Collaboration Against Family Violence was happy to host a political debate on Family Violence chaired by Professor Nicola Atwool of the University of Otago. Family Violence is a huge problem in our community and we invited representatives of four major parties to discuss how they propose to challenge family violence in our community.
It is clear from the debate that we need a change in government and that we need cross-party support for the 'real changes' that are needed to end family violence in our community.
A huge thank you to all the participants and the team at the Media Production studio for making this successful. Here is an audio file of the debate, and I will put up a video in a couple of days.:
Claire Curran – Labour
Jacqui Dean – National
Jan Logie – Greens
Ria Bond – New Zealand First
Nicola Atwool - Facilitator
To enable as many people as possible to participate in the debate, we are sought questions in advance that were put to the panel. The discussion was live-streamed so that it could be watched from home, and a copy of the recording will be available to download after the event.
