We know that addressing family violence in Aboriginal communities is a huge task and one that requires the leadership of Aboriginal and also non-Aboriginal people.

Family violence and sexual assault and the abuse of women and children, is not part of our Aboriginal culture. There is no excuse for family violence ever! We all have a part to play in stopping violence and abuse and speaking up against family violence is something we can all do.

The AFLS has enlisted the support of Friends, here are their messages about how we can stop family violence and support those who are impacted and suffering in our communities.
