There have been over 540 Aboriginal Deaths in Custody since 1980 - over 440 of these since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody released their report in 1991. This grieves the heart of God.

It is important that we learn the names and stories, we lament together, we pray without ceasing and we act to see change.
