I just got an email! And in case you missed the story, it’s thanks to folks like Jane Caro and social media efforts:
“…Clearly there is a lot of support for Gillian in the community as we have received a number of nominations for her. A person only needs to be nominated once to be considered for the Australian of the Year Awards, nominations are selected on the quality, not the quantity.
Rest assured Professor Gillian Triggs will now be put forward for consideration in her home state. “
Yay! Now let’s get to keeping an eye on what other battles we have ahead of us in terms of human rights… :/
