Making our Voices Heard - a community conference to mark Zero Tolerance of Female Genital Mutilation

Butetown Youth Pavilion

Friday, 6th February

9.30am - 4pm

To raise awareness of Female Genital Mutilation, this community conference entitled ‘Making Our Voices Heard’ will be held to mark International Zero Tolerance of FGM at the Butetown Youth Pavilion, Dumballs Road, CF10 5F on Friday 6th February 2015.

The conference reflects the issues of FGM, the impact and the suffering it brings to our communities; and how together we can eradicate this practice.

Good progress is being made in the work to tackle FGM but a lot more needs to be done if we are to achieve our aim of ending violence against women and girls.The Welsh Government cannot achieve this aim alone and wants your assistance and the voices of our communities and partners across Wales.

The Welsh Government wants to hear your views and how to inform and engage with our communities. It is reaching out to as many people as possible to attend this conference.

The conference will take place in a safe and open environment, with facilities such as childcare, prayer rooms and an authentic cuisine based lunch will be provided.
