Media Release: Federal Budget fails to prioritise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

shane_CTRThe Change the Record (CTR) Coalition this morning expressed concern at the 2016 Federal Budget’s overall lack of focus on the Indigenous sector and investment in Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander communities.

CTR Co-Chair Shane Duffy said “We are extremely disappointed that the Turnbull Government’s Budget fails to prioritise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice issues, including the high rates of violence being experienced by Aboriginal women and children, and skyrocketing rates of incarceration of our peoples.”

“The Federal Budget provides a roadmap of Government priorities, and we are deeply concerned that in this Budget Aboriginal justice issues appear to have been forgotten by the Turnbull Government” said Mr Duffy.
