Binnie O'Dwyer: lawyer fighting for Aboriginal rights

From Saturday Morning, 9:35 am on 17 October 2020

Lawyer Belinda (Binnie) O'Dwyer was born in Hastings, and now lives in New South Wales where she works for the Aboriginal Legal Service (ALS). A former environmental activist, she's trying to combat the disproportionately high incarceration rates of Australia's Aboriginal population. In some areas Indigenous people are twice as likely to be sentenced to jail as non-Indigenous offenders.
