This year the Equal Opportunity Commission hosted a lunchtime viewing of the filmĀ Incarceration NationĀ in the Training Room of Albert Facey House for fellow workers in the building.

WA Commissioner for Equal Opportunity Dr John Byrne said it was important for the many government agencies in the building to reflect on how previous government policies had impacted on First Nations Peoples.

"The film clearly depicts how systemic discrimination has shut out Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for generations and is appropriate viewing for Sorry Day," he said.
