Biogragrahy:

From:
ACT

Damian has spent three decades fighting to protect children. After he was assaulted by a Marist Brother, he battled for the perpetrator to be removed from the education system. In 2014 he appeared before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child sexual assault. His evidence helped uncover the systemic failure of the Marist order. Damian is now lobbying governments to implement reportable conduct schemes and the Catholic church to address the causes of their sexual abuse epidemic
