Dear ADJC Supporters
Please find below a series of links to reports and media about a new report by Professor Eileen Baldry from the University of New South Wales.
The Name of the Report: A Predictable and Preventable Path: Aboriginal People with mental and cognitive disabilities in the criminal justice system
The Report is the culmination of many hard years of work by Professor Baldry, Associate Professor Leanne Dowse, Elizabeth McEntyre and Ruth McCausland. The report provides context to the issue of the overrepresentation of Indigenous Australians
There is an accompanying series in the Conversation this week. Please go to:
Finally Jon Stewart Lateline has interviewed Professor Baldry and Dr Mindy Sotiri and Ms Brenda Mitchell from the Community Restorative Centre who are responsible for a programme operating in Broken Hill assisting people transitioning out of detention
I recommend all of these links to you
