Take the Change the Record campaign pledge
The rates at which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are experiencing violence and being put in prison far exceeds that of non-Indigenous Australians. And we have reached a crisis point.
I want to be part of an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and families are safer and stronger. I want to change the record.
We need to:
Close the gap in rates of imprisonment by 2040; and
Cut the disproportionate rates of violence to at least close the gap by 2040 with priority strategies for women and children,
I call on all levels of government to:
Invest in early intervention, prevention and diversion strategies, which address the root causes of violence and imprisonment; and
Work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities, services and their representatives, to develop and implement solutions.
SMARTER JUSTICE. SAFER COMMUNITIES.
