E Tū Whānau is a movement for positive change in response to unacceptable levels of violence in NZ. It's about all of us taking responsibility to create the change we want, including changing attitudes and behaviour, and nurturing and celebrating the things that make whānau strong. No matter how big or small, we can all make a difference and be responsible for creating positive change within our whānau, hapū, iwi and community.
