Let’s Talk… Social Justice with Kevin Yow Yeh
This week on Let’s Talk…Social Justice, Kevin wraps up this series of shows on the Youth Justice Act amendments here in Queensland. Talking back across the interviews we’ve recorded over the past few weeks, Kevin debunks the myths that have been used to justify these proposed amendments, and their likely operation in practice.
Kevin Yow Yeh opened up the phone lines this week to give listeners a chance to ask any questions they have been pondering, and to reflect on the political, social and legal implications of the Youth Justice Act. Reflecting on his own experiences as a social worker and the coordinator of a youth bail program, Kevin takes this time to equip listeners with the tools to understand the changes that have been made in Queensland and why they need to be challenged.
