30th Anniversary of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody

15 April 2021 marks 30 years since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody handed down its historic reporting with over three hundred recommendations to end Black deaths in custody.

Three decades later, Australian First Nations peoples are dying in custody at horrendous rates, with over 470 lives lost in the last 30 years. Five First Nations peoples have died since March this year.
