#RoyalCommissionNOW

In my book 6 & 1/2 Years on a Dunghill: Life in Specialist Disability Accommodation, I have so eloquently expressed the need for 4 key elements in the disability sector: passion, empathy, altruism, and pragmatism. This is very clearly on display by Senator Jordon Steele-John in his speech linked below. I highly encourage everyone to take some time to watch this emotional, awe-inspiring speech.

Senator Jordon Steele-John also adds the following to his video:

I gave this speech last year in dedication to those members of my community who lost their lives due to violence, abuse and neglect.

Their voices remind us why we are fighting for justice. In their names we go forward.

One thought on “#RoyalCommissionNOW”

  1. What is troubling here is the emptiness of the Senate chamber. Do not Senators have a responsibility to each other as fellow members of the Parliament? It’s serious enough without being added to the concern about the injustice of systematic neglect and abuse.
