Welcome to Part 2 of the Homes Not Prisons radio series.

Homes Not Prisons is a campaign established in March 2021 to stop the expansion of the maximum-security women’s prison in Melbourne’s western suburbs, the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre, and divert the funding in public housing and Aboriginal community controlled housing. 

On the 21st October 2022 Homes Not Prisons held a rally in Naarm/Melbourne on the steps of Parliament house to bring people together and raise community awareness.

This episode features the voices of supporters and organisers of the rally. You can hear, first-hand, why people are passionate about housing security, abolishing prisons and building community alternatives.
