The Connections! Hui brought together just over 100 ethnic community organisers and therapists to talk about sexual violence prevention and responses for ethnic communities. It was hosted by the Hon. Jenny Salesa and Shama Hamilton Ethnic Women’s Centre.

Participants who attended represented 31 different ethnicities, 7 different religious backgrounds, 4 genders and were from 13 different regional locations in New Zealand.

This discussion paper reports on the third session of the Connections! Hui: responses to sexual violence, including early interventions, responding to disclosures from children and dealing with perpetrators (see Appendix for questions that were used to prompt group discussion).
