Dear Colleagues,

Thanks for your interest in participating in the forth coming International Conference on World Indigenous Domestic And Family Violence World Conference, Taking place from May 13 - 18 Here in the United States and from May 21st - 25th 2017 In Dakar Senegal. The Conference is been organized by the World Indigenous & Family, sponsored by other benevolent organizations worldwide.

United State: Miami Beach Convention Center florida. No, 1901 Convention Center Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139
SENEGAL: Event Hotel No.10, Rue Colbert Placede L’indépendance BP 9783- Dakar-Senegal.

The conference is designed to be the largest national gathering of community based groups, government and non-government agencies who are all devoted to highlighting and showcasing successful programs in the area of domestic violence, with the united goal of eradicating domestic violence in society through the empowerment of people and workers in the field of Domestic Violence.

Over countless generations, society has developed into what we term “our modern day lifestyle”. In years gone by, violence was part of daily life. As society has moved forward into structured communities, the incidence of intra-tribal violence has slowly faded into the past. Unfortunately one of the most destructive influences on many communities and families in particular is Domestic Violence and the abusive power by men. Although Domestic Violence is not limited to males on women and children, men are by far the biggest perpetrators.

Many communities have worked hard in addressing the incidence of Domestic Violence. Both non-government and government agencies have developed some great programs in addressing these problems. The Gathering is devoted to highlighting many of these successful Domestic Violence programs from different countries globally.

Gender equalization and the abuse of rights of women and children have also played an important role in highlighting violence within the domestic lifestyle of society. Some great initiatives have been developed to stem the incidence of domestic violence. Abuse takes place in all areas of society from the rich to the poor, from Indigenous communities through to mainstream society.

This gathering will focus on issues such as psychological, physical, emotional and mental abuse, including research, community and governmental programs and the dissemination of information to the whole community with the aim of providing positive outcomes.
At the 2016 event, we have taken a decision to focus on and include Indigenous works in the field. As such we are extending special invitations to Indigenous groups from around the World Many communities have strong and powerful leadership in areas of the control and prevention of domestic violence. These groups have developed superb initiatives both within their country and in their Indigenous communities.

This conference aims to:

Reduce incidence of Domestic and Family Violence at all levels

Provide an open and frank forum for discussion

Lend support to individuals and families working in the field of Family and Domestic Violence

Help establish and grow a worldwide network and resources through information sharing

Show that Domestic Violence is no longer tolerated or acceptable in today’s society
