Kornar Winmil Yunti (KWY) and No To Violence (NTV) will be hosting the Working with Aboriginal Men and Family Violence Conference in Adelaide on December 7 & 8, 2017. KWY is an Aboriginal organisation based in Adelaide delivering services across South Australia to Aboriginal families to address family violence. No To Violence is the peak body for organisations and individuals working with men to end their violence and abuse towards family members.
The conference seeks to advance the conversation and support and promote good initiatives and ground-breaking approaches to working with Aboriginal men and families to address family violence.
Who should attend?
The majority of speakers and panel members at the conference are Aboriginal people and organisations working with Aboriginal men to address family violence.

- Senator Pat Dodson
