The Mission: Why We Need To Raise The Age Of Criminal Responsibility

Roxanne Moore, Executive Officer from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services, joins the program to discuss the Raise The Age campaign, which is advocating for officials to raise the age of criminal responsibility in Australia from ten to 14 years old. She explains the motivations behind the campaign, including the overwhelming medical evidence that shows the adverse effects that incarceration has on children in general, and on First Nations children in particular.
