Stepping Up

Benjamin Knight

A Curious Tractor

In my journey, I’ve engaged deeply with social justice, including confronting the challenges within South American prisons. These experiences have been pivotal, enhancing my advocacy for reform. Back in Australia, I’ve been involved in various youth justice projects, notably supporting the rollout of www.yjustice.org. This work aims to empower young individuals and drive systemic change within the youth justice sector, leveraging my background to foster meaningful impacts across communities.

My work extends to the Queensland lower gulf, where I’ve run addiction and family violence programs, and reviewed these initiatives across Queensland with various remote community leaders. My academic pursuit, completing my Honours year in Criminology, focused on the reintegration of individuals from prison into remote communities, underscoring my dedication to understanding and mitigating the complexities of justice and rehabilitation in diverse settings.

In addition to my core experiences, I’ve supported advocacy for children in care with the QFCC, enhancing their rights and well-being. At Orange Sky Australia, I played a key role in building the brand and communications team, focusing on sharing authentic and impactful stories of individuals facing hardships. These experiences have furthered my commitment to driving meaningful change and highlighting the stories that truly matter.
