Cuts to Aboriginal Legal Services will undermine action on Aboriginal jobs and education.

The proposed defunding of the peak body for Aboriginal Legal Services would undermine the Abbott Government’s efforts to improve education and employment for Aboriginal people, according to ANTaR.
 
ANTaR National Director, Gary Highland said that defunding the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services (NATSILS) would lead to more Aboriginal people going to prison and undermine efforts to improve Aboriginal community safety.
