NITV will screen a discussion on family violence, We Say No More, next week.
A panel of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experts in family violence seek to educate the broader community on the current situation faced by First Nations peoples.
The panel helps address behaviour and how to actively become a part of the solution.
Filmed at the Brisbane Powerhouse Museum with five panellists and a studio audience, journalist, artistic director and Bundjalung woman, Rhoda Roberts, will host the discussion.
Directly after the second episode of See What You Made Me Do, NITV will air this standalone response program where panellists unpack how domestic abuse impacts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
Panellists include Dr Vanessa Lee (Senior Academic in social epidemiology, Faculty of Medicine and Health at University of Sydney), Marlene Longbottom (Academic), Jody Currie (CEO ATSI Community Health Service Brisbane), Sandra Creamer (Lawyer and survivor), and Ashlee Donohue (CEO of Mudgin-Gal Women’s Resource Centre and survivor). Justice advocates Carly Stanley and Keenan Mundine will join as part of the audience.
We Say No More airs at 9:30pm Wednesday 12 May on NITV and SBS On Demand. It leads a suite of programming across NITV that aligns with Domestic & Family Violence Awareness Month and helps raise awareness for the domestic abuse epidemic.
Wednesday, 12 May at 9.30pm on NITV.
