Based in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Undercurrent is a diverse and experienced team of volunteers who develop and deliver a comprehensive program of workshops around issues of healthy relationships, family violence and sexual assault, gender and sexuality, and consent and communication.
Our projects are informed by transformative justice frameworks and intersectional feminism, and aim to support people who have experienced or are experiencing violence, challenge attitudes towards women in society, and promote positive and non-violent relationships.
We are also involved in initiatives to develop and operate community-based response processes to domestic and sexual violence, using transformative justice frameworks as an alternative to the criminal legal and prison systems.
We acknowledge that Undercurrent is situated on the land of the Wurundjeri & Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation. We stand on this land as beneficiaries of an uncompensated and unreconciled dispossession which began over 200 years ago and continues today. We would like to reflect that within acknowledgement there should be action. How do we act in solidarity with first nations peoples? How do we act against the economic and social systems which reinforce racism, oppression and subjugation?
