NZ's Pasifika men gather to challenge social ills

From , 5:03 am on 30 June 2017

The over-representation of New Zealand's Pacific people in negative statistics is being targeted at an event in Porirua this weekend.

Pasifika health, financial capability and family violence are key issues that the Gathering of the 3000 aims to challenge.

The event will bring together men from various Pacific communities to confront these issues and work towards positive change.
