Raising the age

10-year-olds don’t belong in jail. At the Aboriginal Legal Service, we've defended children who are so small they can't even be seen over the dock in court. That's not what justice looks like.

Join us in the fight to #RaiseTheAge of legal responsibility from 10 to at least 14 – without exceptions. Because kids belong in schools and playgrounds, not behind bars.
