The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.

Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.
