The ADJC is made up of agencies and individuals who are concerned about the incarceration of Aboriginal people with cognitive impairments, such as intellectual disability, acquired brain injury and psychosocial disability, who commit crimes or are considered a risk of harm to others.
The range of agencies and individuals involved with the ADJC is testament to the concerns which extend broadly to people with disability across Australia.
Of particular concern to this campaign currently is the worrying numbers of Aboriginal people being held in maximum-security prisons in the NorthernTerritory.
