First up, we'll hear a replay from our Dec interview with Sue-Anne Hunter who is a proud Wurundjeri and Ngurai (Nu-Ray) Illum Wurrung woman and Deputy Chair and Commissioner with the Yoorrook Justice Commission. Sue-Anne is a child and family services practitioner who has focused her career around using culture as a foundation for healing trauma and addressing the impacts of colonisation.
