Media Advisory - 2 December 2014

The Minister of Māori Affairs, Hon Te Ururoa Flavell, will endorse the publication of two indigenous best practice manuals to support the delivery of Māori men’s stopping violence programmes at a function at Parliament Buildings tomorrow (Wednesday 3 December 2014) at 11.30 am.

Hosted by the National Network of Stopping Violence, Te Kupenga, the event will also acknowledge the nationwide efforts of its membership in the recent 2014 White Ribbon campaign. The Minister is a White Ribbon Ambassador.

Te Kupenga is a network of 42 independent community‐based organisations – kaupapa Māori and tauiwi (non-Māori) – actively engaged in influencing key areas that they believe will make a difference to the elimination of domestic and family violence in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
