The Making Justice Work campaign in the Northern Territory brings together a wide range of groups with a common interest in effective responses to crime in our community. Groups taking part in the campaign have agreed to work together to promote evidence-based approaches to ‘law and order’ and community safety.
The campaign has no political affiliations. Its members are prepared to work with the Government, Opposition and Independents to develop sound policy proposals for law reform.
The Making Justice Work campaign:
- supports a justice reinvestment approach to criminal justice in the Northern Territory;
- seeks significant reforms to the youth justice system;
- supports night patrols;
- endorses the communiqué that recorded the outcomes of the Top End ‘Grog Summit’ held by the Aboriginal Peak Organisations of the Northern Territory and is against the mandatory alcohol treatment scheme; and
- calls for the repeal of mandatory sentencing.
Budget axing of Australia’s Disability Discrimination Commissioner punishes the most vulnerable. Making Justice Work calls on the Federal Government to reverse the cuts to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
