The man taking on NZ's shameful family violence rates

  • 15/02/2019

It's been almost a decade since Kiwi mum Helen Meads was murdered by her husband, Greg. 

She'd been suffering violence at his hands for several years, when she decided to take the brave step to leave her husband, taking their children, to start a new life. 

Four days later, she was dead. Another devastating case of family violence - another life lost. 

It was after this awful tragedy her father David decided to take a stand, to try to tackle this devastating issue.

He's heading to 71 electorates in 71 days, giving 120 presentations - one for each member of Parliament. 

This is his Harm Ends Futures Begin tour. 

David White spoke to The AM Show.
