Joint media release from Commission for Children and Young People and Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission

Action to strengthen Aboriginal cultural rights in youth justice centres can’t wait for the outcomes of a previously announced inquiry into the over-representation of Aboriginal children and young people in the state’s youth justice system, according to a new joint report released today by the Commission for Children and Young People and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.

"It is the Commission’s job to remind people of the laws around racial vilification, discrimination and human rights and to make sure that those who suffer from vilification or discrimination are able to report it.

Victoria has seen a dramatic rise in race-based discrimination reports over the past twelve months, according to new figures from the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.
