Soroptimist International of Adelaide Annual Domestic Violence Forum

On Monday 9 November, I joined the Soroptimist International Adelaide members for their annual forum on domestic violence, along with Ms Rachel Sanderson MP, Member for Adelaide.

A number of programs were discussed by the guest panellists, including a program for perpetrators by Philip Martin, Uniting Communities, a program for primary schools by Claire Tatzyo and Jemma Taylor of the YWCA, and the role of the White Ribbon Ambassadors, Hamish Richardson and Derrick McManus.

It was an informative evening and I appreciate the commitment from Soroptimist International Adelaide to get men involved in being part of the solution - everyone in our community has a responsibility to help eliminate all forms of domestic violence.
