We Say No More invites a panel of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experts in family violence to educate the broader community on the current situation faced by First Nations peoples. The panel discuss how we can help address this tragic behaviour and actively become a part of the solution.

Directly after the second episode of See What You Made Me Do, NITV will air this standalone response program where panellists unpack how domestic abuse impacts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. Filmed at the Brisbane Powerhouse Museum with five panellists and a studio audience, revered journalist, artistic director and Bundjalung woman, Rhoda Roberts AO, will host the discussion.

Panellists include Dr Vanessa Lee (Senior Academic in social epidemiology, Faculty of Medicine and Health at University of Sydney), Marlene Longbottom (Academic), Jody Currie (CEO ATSI Community Health Service Brisbane), Sandra Creamer (Lawyer and survivor), and Ashlee Donohue (CEO of Mudgin-Gal Women’s Resource Centre and survivor). Justice advocates Carly Stanley and Keenan Mundine will join as part of the audience.

We Say No More airs at 9:30pm Wednesday 12 May on NITV and SBS On Demand. It leads a suite of programming across NITV that aligns with Domestic & Family Violence Awareness Month and helps raise awareness for the domestic abuse epidemic.
