Seeds of Change Forum
Saturday 27 May 2023 8.30 am
The Zonta Clubs of Maroochy, Caloundra, Noosa and Blackall Range - in collaboration with the University of the Sunshine Coast - will be delivering our third Seeds of Change Forum during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention (DFVP) month in May. This year’s theme is 'The Changing Landscape' and it will focus on the impact of recent legislative changes around the criminalisation of coercive control that has occurred in Queensland in the last 12 months as well as changes to domestic violence laws. The free public forum will start at 8.30am and there will be an opportunity to visit the stalls of community service providers before and after the speakers. The keynote speaker will be leading women’s advocate Angela Lynch AM GAIC. Angela is a lawyer and advocate for survivors of sexual, domestic and family violence and is the Advocacy Manager (Legal and Policy) for Full Stop Australia, seeking systemic change to domestic and sexual violence nationally and at state level. Prior to taking up her current position Angela worked for 27 years at the Women’s Legal Service Qld, the last 5 years as CEO. Representatives from the Queensland Police, local community and government service providers will also be presenting, and will outline the work being carried out locally as well as research being pursued through the University of the Sunshine Coast. Tickets are limited and you must register to attend.
