Falam Chin and Karen language family law videos online
With our support, Falam Chin and Karen community leaders in Melbourne’s East have led the development of a series of short online videos discussing family law and family violence.
Produced through the Matter of Respect project, the videos feature local Falam Chin and Karen bilingual presenters. The videos aim to support the community to access legal information and prevent family violence in their own language. The videos also address gender inequality, a key driver of family violence.
Project Co-ordinator Capella Henderson said the Matter of Respect project was guided by the community and the resources were developed together. The Falam Chin and Karen are key language groups and communities in Melbourne’s East from the communities of (formerly) Burma.
“People asked us for information they can get easily and in their own language. It was great to be able to do this and to share these important resources with the community which so far has given us very positive feedback,” said Capella.
Matter of Respect was funded by the Victorian Government.
