    🚨 RELEASED TODAY: Findings from our survey of 1,261 Australian victim-survivors of coercive control. We asked whether victim-survivors believed coercive control should be criminalised & what benefits they thought reform would have.

    Padma Raman speaking at @FutureWomen for #IWD on the need for true diversity in the workplace.

    'You Can't Pour from an Empty Cup' was conducted BY and FOR First Nations people. Engaging over 200 people, 8 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research teams, and using First Nations research methodologies, this new research sets the benchmark.
    #voice @QATSICPP_2018

    New research by @ANROWS regarding the alarming conduct of removal of First Nations children.

    Had some very important yarns with @NITV @SBSNews about the importance of the Rights of our children.

    One too many taken, but not one too many that we can’t fix this crises!

    First Nations people have been left out of decision-making - with devastating consequences.

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers and community members are calling for the urgent reprioritisation of funding.


    New research by @ANROWS @QATSICPP_2018 @ACU_ICPS found that current systems are causing lifelong harm to #FirstNations children impacted by #FamilyViolence. 8 ATSI community researchers developed this framework to heal their children. Incredible resource for all in this space.

    Child wellbeing must become a national policy priority so that First Nations kids & their families can get the help they need, in the ways that they need it. There are no shortcuts. This requires serious cross-portfolio & jurisdictional collaboration and commitment nationally. https://twitter.com/JennaPrice/status/1629969228559265794

    Failure to protect Indigenous children from violence at home ‘funnels’ them into crime, @ANROWS @QATSICPP_2018 & @ACU_ICPS report finds.
