Another Stolen Generation

Monday, 10 December 2018 - 8:30am to 9:00am

December 10 is Human Rights Day, and this week on Women on the Line we look at a human rights issue that is very close to home: the rising number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out of home care in Australia, and what this means for these young people, their families and communities.

Recent changes to legislation made by the state government in NSW will have serious consequences for First Nations communities, and in light of this we’ll hear from Dana Clarke, AbSec Chair and CEO of Burrun Dalai Aboriginal Corporation, Aunty Hazel Collins, founder of Grandmothers Against Removals, and Muriel Bamblett, CEO of the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency and recently appointed chair of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal Islander Child Care.
