Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People


In Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are three times more likely to experience sexual assault than non-Indigenous Australians with 12% of recorded sexual assaults in Queensland in 2016 being Indigenous, despite only making up 4% of Queensland population. There is a clear over-representation of Indigenous Australians within sexual assault statistics and the Queensland Sexual Assault Network urges all community members and organisations to together work towards addressing these issues.
