Australia’s first ever truth-telling process is officially underway!
Without Truth there can be no Treaty. That’s what we’ve heard loud and clear from Community and it’s why one of the first things we did on the journey towards Treaty was negotiate with the Government to establish Yoorrook.
Our friends at the Yoorrook Justice Commission have begun
traveling across Victoria, listening to the stories and first-hand experiences of Elders and Community since colonisaiton.
Yoorrook will examine the racist legacies of invasion, highlight structural problems and help find the solutions. Treaty will then deliver the change.
Truth-telling will be confronting and hard work, but this country needs to reckon with its past if we’re to create a better future together.
