Andrew Meehan talks to 2 XX FM

National Director Andrew Meehan talks to 2XX FM about the crisis this nation faces with the numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people incarcerated.

Justice Targets are needed for action on Aboriginal jobs and education.

ANTaR supports the calls made today by the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services (NATSILS) and the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples for the Governments of Australia to adopt Justice Targets.

Dr Lewis said that the Abbott Government has a commitment to improving Aboriginal education and employment, but the continued high rates of incarceration are a major barrier to achieving it.
