Black Lives Matter: a webinar on policing and justice reform
RLC invites you to attend a free webinar on policing and justice reform in Australia.
In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, the United States is about to introduce a bill to reform policing.
With First Nations peoples disproportionately represented in the policing and justice systems both in NSW and across Australia, it begs the question: What reforms should occur here?
This free webinar will be streamed live on Thursday 23 July from 3pm-4.45pm (AEST), presented by Redfern Legal Centre, National Justice Project, Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning and Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW/ACT).
Facilitator: Larissa Behrendt, Director of Research, Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning, University of Technology (UTS), Sydney. Book now.
