In Conversation with Apryl Day

Apryl Day and Eddie Cubillo


The Indigenous Law and Justice Hub was joined for a night of black excellence as we heard from Apryl Day, as part of the White Noise of settler law justice talks. In this White Noise Apryl shared her reflections on the coronial inquest process and associated community law reform needs, drawing on her personal experiences as a family member and her advocacy through the Dhadjowa Foundation.

We encourage you generously to donate to The Dhadjowa Foundation.

This seminar was jointly hosted by The Indigenous Law and Justice Hub and Criminal Law Research Forum, Melbourne Law School.
