To celebrate the upcoming fifth anniversary of the Dhurrawang Aboriginal Human Rights Program, key staff are reflecting on its establishment and successes to date. At this webinar, co-hosted by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Network, presenters discuss how mainstream community legal centres can successfully build programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.
“Programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients can and do work when established and run in a culturally safe and trauma informed way. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lawyers / paralegals / other workers are vitally important assets for these programs."
–Emma Towney, Solicitor/Program Manager
