We are excited to announce more great speakers confirmed for Prevalent & Preventable, the AWAVA/Our Watch conference on the prevention of violence against women. In the Children and Young People as Agents of Change stream, we will have Jennifer Uwineza and Andrew Taukolo from #R4Respect in Logan City, Queensland, speaking on campaigns and cultural change in the community. Also presenting will be members of the Young Women’s Advisory Group (YWAG) of our sister Alliance, Equality Rights Alliance, sharing their experiences as young people creating change. More great announcements to come soon! Registrations are open for the conference (Adelaide, 19–22 September) but the early bird rate closes on 17 July, so register now!
