#JustJustice – tackling the over-incarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

WHAT IS #JUSTJUSTICE?

#JustJustice is a crowd-funded campaign that produced a series of articles at Croakey. These have been packaged into a free e-book.

Join thousands of other people in downloading your copy of the #JustJustice book RIGHT HERE.

The articles and the book highlight the wide-ranging health impacts of over-incarceration upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, families and communities, and take a strengths-based approach to identifying solutions.

The #JustJustice project developed out of conversations with Aboriginal health leaders, including Dr Tom Calma and the former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner Mick Gooda. It took a solutions-focused approach, and identified ways that politicians, policy makers and the wider community can tackle over-incarceration.

It aims to help politicians, policy makers, the health sector and the wider community to understand that over-incarceration is a critical public health issue.

Check our Pozible pitch. The campaign was successfully funded on 7 June, 2015.

At the bottom of this page are the names of more than 300 donors to the campaign.
We would particularly like to acknowledge our two premium sponsors, Jesuit Social Services, and Frank Meany of One Vision.

The #JustJustice book was launched on 27 November, 2016. To mark the launch, we are giving away the #JustJustice Twittertips.  Read more about the hard copy book at the bottom of this post (and also here); it was produced on a pronbono basis in late 2016. It was provided in addition to the promised outcomes for the #JustJustice crowdfunding campaign.

***

WHAT DOES #JUSTJUSTICE AIM TO ACHIEVE?

1. We will produce a long-running series of articles that will be packaged into an e-book for wide distribution to politicians, policy makers and others.

2. We hope to encourage a sustained focus on over-incarceration as a critical public health concern. In so doing, we hope to help change the dominant narrative around this issue, and to enable new connections and collaborations for change.

***

WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS OF #JUSTJUSTICE?

The project has six main components:

1. Articles by researchers, NGOs, advocates, policy makers and others that highlight critical areas for change in policy and practice, and also initiatives that are successful in reducing incarceration rates.

2. Investigative journalism articles highlighting some ways forward and blockages in the political and policy arenas, as well as profiling community initiatives.

3. Articles/podcasts/short YouTube clips from community members highlighting the impact of current policies (community members will be paid for contributing stories).

4. Infographics and Internet memes to provide catchy, visual representation of some of the key issues.

5. The rotated curated Twitter accounts @IndigenousX and @WePublicHealth will work in with the project, to help amplify the voices and stories that are being told.

6. At the conclusion of the series, all articles, graphics and electronic links will be packaged into an interactive e-book that will be made freely available and distributed to policy makers, educational institutions, NGOs etc.

***

WHO ARE WE?

The #JustJustice team is:

• Summer May Finlay – @OnTopicAus – a Yorta Yorta woman, public health professional and a PhD candidate.

• Marie McInerney – @mariemcinerney – an experienced editor and journalist who specialises in covering social policy, and is a moderator at Croakey.

• Melissa Sweet – @croakeyblog – a public health journalist, the founder of Croakey blog and the rotated curated account @WePublicHealth, and a PhD candidate.

• Mitchell Ward – @rocklilydesign – a graphic designer and web developer.

• In early 2016, Dr Megan Williams joined the team. She is a Senior Research Fellow at the Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing Research team at Western Sydney University.  She conducts research at the nexus of health and justice, focussing on the leadership and wellbeing of Aboriginal people.

Luke Pearson – @LukeLPearson – founder of the ground-breaking, rotated curated account @IndigenousX – is social media consultant to the campaign.

We also hope to work with a range of other writers, including:

 Kelly Briggs – @TheKooriWoman – who has previously crowd-funded a series of articles at Croakey.

 Dr Tim Senior – @timsenior – who has previously crowd-funded a series of Wonky Health columns at Croakey.

• Dameyon Bonson – @DameyonBonson – founder of the crowd-funded Black Rainbow Living Well – For Indigenous LGBQTI Suicide Prevention.

HOW CAN YOU HELP SUPPORT #JUSTJUSTICE?

SHARE the news about the campaign via social media and your networks

USE the hashtag #JustJustice on relevant tweets and articles

CONTRIBUTE articles or ideas for articles

We are particularly keen to hear from community members who would like to share their stories and experiences.

***

WHAT IS THE PROJECT’S FRAMEWORK?

This project is being informed by a decolonising methodology for journalism practice, which includes:

• Providing a useful service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

• Recognition of the role of colonisation in contributing to incarceration rates and acknowledgement/understanding of how this history plays out in the present.

• Taking a strengths-based approach.

• Ensuring priority representation of and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and their expertise, knowledges, cultures and experiences.

• Examining white privilege, particularly within this context.

• Process matters. This project recognises the importance of respect and relationships, and puts emphasis on how the project is done, as one of the outcomes.

HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?

The funds will be distributed:

• 50 per cent to the #JustJustice team, i.e. $12,500 in total. Each member will receive 10 per cent i.e. $2,500 (after administration and related costs): Summer May Finlay, Marie McInerney, Luke Pearson (as social media consultant), Mitchell Ward, and Melissa Sweet.

• 10 per cent ie $2,500 distributed between authors Dr Tim Senior, Kelly Briggs, and Dameyon Bonson.

• 40 per cent ie $10,000 in total, to community members for contributing their stories (Luke, Summer, Kelly and Dameyon may also be involved in this component and so receive part of these funds as well).

Our sincere thanks to the other 44 donors who chose to remain anonymous.

If you donated but your name is not mentioned above, it may be because your pledge was not realised (due to problems with the credit card, Pay Pal etc) or because you asked to be anonymous. If you believe you should be listed here, please get in touch with @croakeyblog.

The #JustJustice book, in print

The hard copy #JustJustice book was produced on a pronbono basis in late 2016. It was provided in addition to the promised outcomes for the #JustJustice crowdfunding campaign (as outlined above).

The aim was to provide a platform for advocacy, political engagement and for bringing wider attention to the issues raised by the contributors to the series published at Croakey and made available in the free e-publication. The #JustJustice team (Summer May Finlay, Dr Megan Williams, Marie McInerney, Melissa Sweet and Mitchell Ward) did this extra work on a probono basis, with the assistance of supporters and contributors Karen Wyld and Sally Fitzpatrick.

The #JustJustice team has made copies of the book available for sale at cost price to Gleebooks in Sydney. As with all bookstores, a retailer’s mark-up is added to this price. The book is also available via print-on-demand (it was provided at cost-price to these platforms, which then add their own mark-up). See Angus & Robertson, Fishpond, and Amazon.

Neither Croakey nor members of the #JustJustice team are making money from sales of this book. We were able to print a second edition of the book thanks to a grant from Western Sydney University. This grant is also being used to support further #JustJustice activities, including the publication of related articles arising from an interview with Minister Ken Wyatt and other dissemination work.

We encourage libraries, schools and other organisations to buy copies of the #JustJustice book, which provides a unique and powerful avenue for dissemination of community experiences, research and prevention and support programs and initiatives.

The crisis of over-incarceration continues. We have had much positive feedback about the impact of #JustJustice, reinforcing that unified efforts are required across disciplines, worldviews and communities in order to prevent issues from worsening and in order to stop over-incarceration. We thank and acknowledge all contributors and supporters of the #JustJustice project.

What people say about Croakey

Croakey not only gives me up to date information on contemporary health issues, but allows me to send my health information across Australia in an instant. It is also the perfect vehicle for starting peoples’ movements, engaging with Indigenous peoples and our issues, and building a community that has at its basis a desire to make positive change happen. It is polite and political, informative and inspiring. Active engagement is what Croakey does – and I like it!
