Australia: Stand with Indigenous kids in Australia - ONLINE PETITION

Amnesty International Australia

"But our government is separating Indigenous kids from their communities. Kids as young as 10 are being locked up, all across Australia; threatening our future as a fair and harmonious community.
If you're an Indigenous kid, you are 26 times more likely to be locked up than your non-Indigenous classmates. But Indigenous people have the solutions -- community-led programs that support kids so they don't get into trouble, and if they do, help them address the reasons why. Now we need our government to support these solutions too. Can you stand up for Indigenous kids in Australia today?"
