I AM NOT THE PROBLEM CAMPAIGN

Solutions to Addressing Family Violence Video
FVPLS Victoria's new video Solutions to Addressing Family Violence was launched on Tuesday 5 July 2016 at our annual NAIDOC Morning Tea. Our Solutions were developed based on the feedback from Aboriginal victims/survivors. It is absolutely critical that Government invest in our organisation to keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women’s voices front and centre as it implements the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence.
These are our Solutions and we call on you to stand with us.
