Breakfasters: An Update On The #RaiseTheAge Campaign
Dr. Jacoba Brasch QC joins Summer Breakfasters Daniel James, Flick Ford and Vaughan Quinn to discuss the Raise The Age campaign. The campaign advocates for officials to raise the age of criminal responsibility in Australia from 10 to 14 years old. As Daniel points out, Indigenous children are disproportionately affected.
Last week, international pressure escalated when 31 United Nations member states called for Australia to increase the age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 14. Dr. Brasch discusses the Raise The Age campaign’s progress, importance, and more.
