Annual National Close the Gap Day Picnic 2016
Thanks to everyone who braved the weather this morning to join us for the Annual National Close the Gap Day Picnic. Big thanks to Close the Gap Co-Chair Jackie Huggins from National Congress of Australia's First Peoples who spoke about the unacceptable 10 year life expectancy gap that must be closed. Also big shout out to the Redfern Jarjum College dancers - they were deadly. Over 1600 Close the Gap events took place today with thousands of Australians reminding the government that health equality must be a national priority.
