Stop strip searching Aboriginal kids
Right now, police are strip searching Aboriginal kids.
All children should be able to feel safe and in control of their own bodies.
It is unacceptable for children as young as 10 to be forced to remove their clothes in front of adults, especially without any parental and legal support present.
NSW Police are defending their use of strip-searches yet the majority of strip searches result in a "no-find".
Strip searches are intrusive and humiliating. Even more so for Aboriginal kids who are often the targets of police harassment.
The NSW Government has the power to legislate safeguards to protect Aboriginal kids.
Together we can demand accountability to prevent unlawful strip searches by police, especially for those under the age of 18 years.
