Welcome to Part 4 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 (DPFC), and divert the funding in public housing and Aboriginal community controlled housing.
This episode features talks that explore the intersections of poverty, homelessness and trauma, and how these experiences often include an interception of time in prison.
