Law Reform

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social justice

From time to time, TACLS will provide contributions to issues that impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Tasmania and across the country. Such issues may include

  • high rates of removal of children from their families, and placement in out of home care;
  • high rates of Aboriginal incarceration;
  • racism;
  • housing challenges;
  • mental health.

Our submissions will draw on our direct practice but also the experiences of community that we learn about. There will be occasions that we seek specific community feedback on an issue, so we may have a community forum or seek input through an online survey.

Where we do make contributions, they will be published here for access.
