Jonathon Slottje

Born in the era when Aboriginal people were not classed as Australian citizens, Jonathon's childhood was scarred by family violence and years of incarceration. While incarcerated in the 1970s he transcribed books in braille for the NSW Royal Society for the Blind and provided a submission to the 1978 Nagle Royal Commission into the NSW Department of Corrective Services brutality against inmates. He eventually launched a number of successful businesses, including the business that he currently runs with his wife Elizabeth. He is working on a memoir for The Next Chapter.
