Aboriginal justice after the referendum
Australia’s referendum to vote on Constitutional recognition of First Peoples is part of a many decades-long history of advocacy for self-determination. The referendum moment was not the beginning nor the end of the work that needs to be done.
The Wide Open Air Exchange spoke with Aboriginal justice advocate Peta MacGillivray, a Kalkutungu woman, lawyer and doctoral researcher with strong connections to community and you can listen to the audio here.
