An educational workshop/facilitated discussion for lawyers, academics, public servants and activists that might be interested in taking action on the project to bring about a social, cultural and legal end to conversion practices in South Australia.

Topic:
How addressing conversion practices effectively could be a panacea for the ongoing discrimination and abuse faced by members of the LGBTIQA+ communities.

Questions:
Why has it proven so difficult to legislate on conversion practices?
Why have political elites struggled so much with comprehensively addressing this problem?
What makes the globally recognised Australian survivor-led model of legislation so revolutionary?

Speakers:
Dr Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli AM (Honorary Fellow, Deakin University)
Nathan Despott (SOGICE Survivors, La Trobe University, and Inclusion Melbourne)
