SMART MONEY Forum: Justice Reinvestment and Alternatives to Indigenous Imprisonment

SMART_Money-ForumATSILS CEO Shane Duffy was part of an esteemed group of panelists sharing views on the potential of justice reinvestment at Caxton Legal Centre’s “Smart Money” forum last night. The panel included Social Justice Commissioner Mick Gooda and leading advocates from the legal and community services sector.

Australia faces a human rights crisis as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander imprisonment rates soar – Indigenous people are now 13 times more likely to go to jail than non-Indigenous persons.

The event was well attended and a great opportunity to bring further attention to these unacceptable statistics and advocate for smarter approaches to justice that can reduce imprisonment, save money and create safer communities for all.
