Emma Wyeth and Georgia McCarty recently attended the Toi Tū Te Whānau, Toi Tū Te Kāwai Whakapapa: A Workshop on Whānau and Whakapapa for Public Policy.
Co-hosted by Superu and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, this incredible conference included a diverse range of speakers including policy makers, service workers, statisticians, lawyers and researchers’ and more. Topics focused on Māori whānau and the Criminal Justice System which included talks on: statistical data trends of the wellbeing of our whānau; whānau ora and transforming approaches to how public policy is made; tamariki and the family court; precariat Māori households and poverty of not only finance but poverty of spirit; and the Criminal Justice System in Aotearoa and the need to give the power and mana back to Māori whānau to feel and make the change themselves. An empowering day!
