Indigenous policy reform in the Northern Territory

12 July, 2007

Below is an announcement about an extraordinary seminar dealing with the events following the release of the Little Children are Sacred report.  I’m sure that a lot of people who can’t make it to Darwin would be very interested in hearing what the speakers have to say.  I will check if there are plans to share the papers/speeches in some form.

You are invited to attend a public forum on

    I have found out from one of the organisers that this event will involve interviews by the local version of Stateline, broadcast on the ABC. Transcripts will be available on the web and other materials may also be made available.
