This edition of Reconciliation News is all about voice: how to raise it; how to support it; and when to stop and listen.
This issue of Reconciliation News is inspired by the National Reconciliation Week theme Be a Voice for Generations, which calls on all Australians to amplify the calls of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and carry the torch from those who have come before us.
This edition has many contributing voices: from Talei Elu realising her heart lies in community work in Seisia, Cape York (p.12); to Jack Latimore on Indigenous Sovereignty (p.26); to children’s voices raised in excitement to learn from Uncle Pat in Tumut (p.24); and the significance of culturally and linguistically diverse communities on the upcoming referendum (p.20).
Edition 49 also includes a story on the new Life Without Barriers Elevate RAP (p.28), which features a strong partnership with First Nations children’s peak body SNAICC.
On p.10 find a list of ways that you can Be a Voice for Generations – don’t forget listening is the first step.
