Jill Gallagher AO has never hesitated to seize opportunities to support her community in the pursuit of better health, community autonomy and reclamation of the traditional culture and society of Aboriginal Victorians. A Gunditjmara woman, Jill was born in the Australian Capital Territory as her parents travelled looking for work. She was 1 of 10 children. Her mother, Frances (nee Winter) grew up at Framlingham in south-west Victoria. Jill's father, of Irish descent, was accidentally killed when she was a baby.
Jill speaks on 3KND about race issues and how ACCOs have worked tirelessly to keep Communities safe during COVID. How to keep vigilant and safe if you chose to attend the rally this Saturday organised by Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance - WAR. And, lastly work currently being done by Aboriginal Health Workers and Communities to support the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System.
