First Nations people are disproportionately represented in the justice system, making up 27% of those in our correctional facilities. What’s worse is that First Nations women are 34 times more likely to experience family violence than non-First Nations women in Australia. That is why we support Close the Gap Target 13 to reduce family violence against First Nations women by 50% by 2031.
