Reconciliation is at a tipping point. We are seeing people increasing knowledge, understanding truth, and speaking up on issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This year, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action asks people to take this awareness and knowledge, and use it as a springboard to more substantive, brave action.
For reconciliation to be effective, it must involve truth-telling, and actively address issues of inequality, systemic racism and instances where the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are ignored, denied or reduced.
