The NSW Government has rushed through new bail laws, without consultation, which have made it harder for children charged with certain offences to get bail than adults facing the same allegations.

These changes are a knee-jerk law and order response to an issue that is more important than just responding to crime. We need to change the conversation so we can make real changes to prevent crime, not just punish people.

Join Greens MP Sue Higginson, Greens Senators Dorinda Cox and David Shoebridge, Youth advocate and worker in Moree, Mekayla Cochrane, and CEO of the Aboriginal Legal Service Karly Warner in discussion about the real issues that are driving youth crime.

Together, we can change the conversation, and get better action in NSW to protect young people and prevent crime.
