In September of 2010 the Victorian Government announced additional funding to the ECCV that has enabled us to fulfill a long held dream to establish a permanent memorial to our founding Chairperson, Mr Walter Lippmann. Walter died some years ago and as the founding father of this organisation deserves a memorial to his name. Now we can establish the Walter Lippmann Memorial Lecture series and conduct the first lecture in June of 2011.
In August of 2009 the ECCV initiated an important forum to expose the issues surrounding domestic violence in CALD communities. Called “Strengthening Families; Strengthening Communities” the forum attracted such high calibre speakers as The Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police Simon Overland the state Attorney-General Hon Rob Hulls MP.
