A Monash University study has found systematic racism within Australia’s justice system is linked to 151 Indigenous women’s deaths, prompting calls for greater accountability of authorities in responding to domestic and family violence.

Jessica Addo, Regional Queensland Training Award finalist, talking about her success in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. TAFE Queensland graduate Jessica Addo wants to break down barriers to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children experience positive learning environments.

Christine Rhazi, Caritas Australia First Australians Programs Associate Director, talking about how Australians want to see more government support for the Stolen Generations.
