Nau mai, haere mai ki te pā waha o Te Kupenga!
Welcome to the gateway of Te Kupenga – the National Network of Stopping Violence – a network or ‘he kupenga’ of 42 independent community-based organisations. We work to enable all people in Aotearoa/New Zealand to live safely and respectfully in a society free of all forms of violence and oppression – the safety of women and children is paramount. Organisations interested in becoming a member of Te Kupenga can email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application pack.
White Ribbon Day, 25 November, is the international day when people wear a white ribbon to show that they do not condone violence towards women.
