ANTAR and Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA) joint submission to inform the Senate Inquiry into Missing and Murdered First Nations Women and children.

There is a national crisis happening in Australia that we cannot fully comprehend due to the failure of basic data representation and a lack of media coverage. From the data available, the rate at which First Nations women and children go missing, or become victims of murder and homicide is a crisis that demands immediate redress. The reality in Australia is that First Nations women and children are not only at risk of harm in the community, but also within the institutions that are meant to protect them without bias relating to cultural background or the circumstances.
