van Smeerdijk, James (AKA James)


I've been working at PwC on a report on Indigenous incarceration in Australia over recent months, and its a national disgrace, including many young people. I wanted to do something to bring attention to this issue and also help our Whitelion who do such a good job.

$75.00 received from Lisa Simpson on 25-May-17Wow. So according to your PwC report on indigenous incarceration, the $1,000 in bail wouldn't even cover the cost of one day of youth detention! Surely there are better ways to use that money! Lisa
