Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services unite to take children's human rights concerns to the UN.

Posted on Mon 10 October 2011

Representatives from a coalition of key NGOs are set to meet with the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child on Monday 10 October to discuss significant human rights issues affecting Australia’s children before the Government presents its case to the Committee in early 2012.

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services (NATSILS) have been working with the NGO coalition to provide the Committee with accurate information about human rights violations affecting Australia’s children, while also providing the Committee with a detailed supplementary report focusing on the human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in contact with the justice and child protection systems.

NATSILS released a media statement Friday 7 October in anticipation of the NGO meeting to be held today. Access a copy at our Media Releases page.
