Whānau and Māori communities are leading change to address alcohol harm in Auckland starting with an alcohol policy forum on Thursday 23rd May 2013. The forum will give attendees an insight into the Auckland alcohol policy. Community health worker, Hemi Tahuri, is keen to hear about how whānau, community members and organisations can work together to address alcohol harm issues. “I’m hoping the forum will provide a clear pathway on how we can support whānau and communities to have a say on Alcohol policies” says Mr Tahuri.

The forum will also showcase Māori youth views on alcohol and their ideas on solutions to such harm. Members of the Auckland Māori collective, Waipiro Harm Action Group will be in attendance to jointly strategise ways in which they can encourage whānau, hapu and iwi to participate in alcohol policy decision-making.
