Jim Morrison is our Executive Director
Jim Morrison is a senior Nyungar man, a Traditional Custodian from WA’s southern coast. His mother, father, and their 21 siblings were all stolen and separated as children. Jim is a long-term supporter of Bringing Them Home WA, and served as Aboriginal Co-Chair 2007-2017. He resigned that role to take up the appointment as our inaugural Executive Director.
Jim has been an uncompromising activist, advocate and leader in pivotal Aboriginal advancement roles for over four decades, working passionately to address the tragic mental health and suicide issues that are a legacy of Stolen Generations policy; equity in access to culturally safe services in State and Commonwealth Governments; overdue prison reforms; Aboriginal employment; education and training; equity in universities; the protection of young street people and the formation and management of non-government agencies providing services to Aboriginal families and their broader communities.
In 2017, Jim was awarded the John Curtin Medal in recognition of his vision and leadership, and the significant contribution he has made to the community.
