Father Frank Brennan raising his voice for the voiceless
Starting in his new role as CEO of Catholic Social Services Australia, Fr Frank Brennan – Jesuit Priest and Professor of Law – has a clear plan for what he needs to do to change Australia for the better.
"I have spent many years dedicated to the enhancement of Aboriginal rights and the rights and entitlements of refugees and asylum seekers. I have seen it as my moral duty to stand up for those in our society who are marginalised and disadvantaged," Fr Frank Brennan, said.
"Even though Australia has become a more prosperous country since I started working in Redfern more than 40 years ago, this prosperity has not been shared across the community. I have become increasingly concerned that the gap between rich and poor in Australia is becoming unbridgeable."
