"New Zealand unveils 25-year plan to combat domestic violence"

From Jurist:

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence Marama Davidson Tuesday launched a 25-year plan to tackle domestic and family violence in New Zealand homes.

This is the country’s first national strategy for eliminating family violence and sexual violence. It is known as “Te Aorerekura” and it involves 10 agencies working together.

Davidson said that the government’s vision is to create peaceful homes where children, families and extended family thrive. The government also aims to create safe communities where all people are respected, and to support the well-being of the nation. The new plan represents an evolution in the journey to address violence in homes and in communities.
