From an episode of Breakfasters
Jill Gallagher AO on Breakfasters
Jill Gallagher AO is a Gunditjmara woman and Victorian Treaty Advancement Commissioner. Her commission aims to create a representative body for Aboriginal people in Victoria by mid-2019 which will in turn establish a framework for treaty with the state government. Jill speaks to Jeff, Geraldine and Sarah about the benefits of treaties with all levels of government and how First Nations people want substantive change, not symbolism. Jill will be delivering the ‘Journey Towards Treaty’ lecture at Level 50 Bourke Place this Thursday from 2pm.
