Title

Standing Firm for Change: A Journey to Justice National Conference 2012

Abstract

Standing Firm for Change: A Journey to Justice is a national conference organised by FVPLS Victoria, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled organisation focused on providing access to justice for victims/ survivors of family violence and sexual assault.

The conference is a significant opportunity for Aboriginal community members, leaders, workers and policy makers to confront the complexities of family violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and propose resolutions for change.

The conference coincides with FVPLS Victoria’s 10 years service in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Victoria.

FVPLS Victoria is committed to improving law and justice responses and accessibility of the legal system for victims of family violence and sexual assault. The conference will provide a platform to influence systemic change and to improve law and justice outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and in particular for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children nationally.
