Public Interest Address 2018

The Public Interest Address was held on 8 August with the keynote speech delivered by Mick Gooda, descendant of the Ganglu people of central Queensland and former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner.
 
Mr Gooda's address reflected on the issues facing Indigenous Australians and highlighted the importance of truth telling. In doing so, he expressed frustration at failed attempts to rights past wrongs and championed the need for a rights-based approach with the universality and indivisibility of all human rights. We hope to share the speech soon on our website. 
 
We were welcomed by Uncle Des Sandy with stories of the local area and also heard from LawRight lawyer Donnella Mills about the use of the Law Yarn tool at the health justice partnership between LawRight and Wuchopperen Health Service in Cairns.

Donations from attendees have enabled us to supply 75 Law Yarn resource bags to community workers. Click here to read more about Law Yarn.
