We invite all faith and community leaders and representatives from Monash, Whitehorse, Manningham and Boroondara to participate in a “call to action forum”. The Forum aims to engage and inspire people to take action to prevent family violence. You will hear from people with lived experience of family violence, its impacts and how they became advocates for change. You will also learn about what other faith communities are doing, their learnings/challenges, and opportunities to support one another.

  • A Man’s Perspective with Tarang Chawla, Our Watch Ambassador, Survivor Advocate, Legal Policy Commentator, Writer, Storyteller
