Summary

"More than 90 articles profiling solutions to the over incarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been published as part of the crowdfunded #JustJustice campaign. This book compiles those articles, providing a significant intervention into public and policy debate about the overincarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. By privileging the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across the country, and taking a strengths-based, solutions-focused approach, this book reveals the depth of knowledge, social and cultural capital, and leadership among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The stories and voices in this book demand a strong response, and that must include action from governments, policymakers and service providers, including those working in the health sector. This book also demands a response from all Australians, that we individually and collectively acknowledge the true history of the colonisation of this country, in order to enable healing and justice. As these stories show, one of the longstanding strategies of colonisation has been to criminalise, institutionalise and incarcerate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; we must acknowledge this history in order to stop repeating it." --Page 9
