Crisis of Rising Incarceration Rates

We need targets to reduce this unacceptable rate of imprisonment!

Help us and lobby politicians now to develop justice targets to reduce the over incarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The Commonwealth, states and territory governments have agreed to cooperate on reducing contact by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with the criminal justice system, yet nothing has been done to set much needed justice targets under the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) closing the gap framework that would guide this work.  

We must step up the pressure to ensure these commitments are turned into action.

Take action below and send emails to the Prime Minister, the Federal Attorney General, the Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister and their State and Territory counterparts.
