On 24 February, a public forum at the Australian Catholic University
(ACU), Melbourne, will explore how the Catholic Church, through its parishes and organisations, can play a significant role in combating family violence.
Which of these standards should we relax for people in prison? Which of these can be done away with without undermining
the minimum acceptable levels of respect for the human dignity of an older
person? Which of them would we want set
aside if an elderly family member were to be incarcerated?
We need to have the conversation.
