AHEPA Chapter Artemis to hold lecture on domestic violence in multicultural communities


AHEPA Chapter Artemis No 5 Inc. is holding a lecture on Sunday, May 30 at 3pm at the Ashbury Panarcadian Federation Club to discuss the prevalence of domestic violence in Australia, including multicultural communities.

Titled ‘Domestic Violence Affects Us All,’ the lecture will be given by keynote speaker and solicitor, Mary Nagle, who will discuss the early signs that foretell the likely onset of violence in the home, in a relationship, at work or any other situation where there is ongoing interaction among people.

Ms Nagle will also explain the different aspects of family or relationship violence, the implications and the law and options available to those who need to escape from relationship violence.

According to data provided by NSW Police, domestic violence claims one life every 15 days. In just one decade, from October 2008 through to September 2018, the number of victims of domestic violence climbed up to 285. The tragic reality of this number is that some of the victims were children.

“It is topical at the moment to talk about relationship violence. There is so much of it in the news, but so much more of it in people’s lives especially from the ethnic communities which we do not usually hear about,” Ms Nagle says.

“The talk isn’t just for women but it’s for anyone who is, was, or likely to be in a relationship or knows someone in a relationship, whether this is a parent-child relationship, a husband-wife i.e. spousal relationship, a close friendship or partnership. In short it’s for everyone.

“AHEPA Australia, led by the President, Committee and members of Artemis 5 is dedicated to raising awareness and addressing issues affecting those men, women, children and their families who suffer in silence. Artemis 5 will continue to raise funds for causes that concern them…”

Event details: Ashbury Panarcadian Federation Club, 55 King St, Ashbury (May 30, 3pm).

If you would like to purchase a ticket to the event, they are $20 and you can contact Eleni C Lianos on 0439 000 027 or Mary Nagle on 0410 787 166.
