Read the Indigenous Law Centre's own Dr Kyllie Cripps' analysis of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence final report at The Conversation now.

'The Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence’s final report, released last week, recognises the disproportionate rate of family violence in Indigenous communities. Aboriginal Victorians are nearly eight times as likely to be involved in a family violence incident involving police than non-Aboriginal Victorians and the rate is increasing.

Testimony to the commission made it clear that few Aboriginal families were immune to the trauma, despair and damage resulting from family violence.'
