Victoria Legal Aid (VLA) is an independent statutory authority responsible for providing non-legal advocacy, information, advice and legal assistance.

This submission outlines the systemic racism and direct and indirect discrimination against First Peoples on the basis of their race, and other intersecting attributes such as disability, age, sex and gender, across all areas of public life, including racial discrimination and prejudice in education, when accessing public and social housing, and healthcare, including access to healthcare services in prisons. It also provides a range of foundational reforms to uphold and enliven a self-determined approach to health and healthcare, housing and education systems in Victoria.
