This week, stories of justice and power from regional Australia.

The case that transformed me

In our first story, personal injury lawyer Sally Gearin speaks about seeking justice for a client whose courage to overcome her tragedy inspires Sally to this day.

Sally originally shared this tale at SPUN, a live storytelling event from the Northern Territory. SPUN is now held at Browns Mart on Larrakia land. Since 1972, Browns mart has been championing new work and new voices through residencies, creative developments and presentations.

Hum - Bread, leggings, helicopters

Then we hear from Gomeroi poet, writer and law academic Alison Whittaker. 

This poem was written and read by Alison Whittaker and originally performed for ‘When Breath Meets Air,’ an event curated by Tina Huang for the Boundless Festival.

You can find Alison on Twitter @AJ_Whittaker.
