Community is Everything – ATSILS Principal Legal Officer talking to schools about issues & solutions re: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth detention

Greg Shadbolt - Principal Legal Officer ATSILSCommunity is Everything

Last week our Principal Legal Officer was out in the community shining a light on the issues related to the high detention rates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and the solutions needed to create brighter futures for our kids.

Greg presented to senior school students from around a dozen schools – hosted at the Brisbane Boys College (Toowong) as part of Amnesty International Australia‘s “Community is Everything” campaign.

There were several hundred school children and teachers in attendance and it was a great opportunity to increase awareness of critical justice issues effecting kids futures to new audiences less likely to be exposed to such challenges.
