The incoming Federal Parliament in 2022 will be faced with unprecedented social and economic challenges. Reconciliation is one of the challenges that when achieved forms the foundation of a unified society.
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.
Reconciliation Australia’s work shows the majority of Australians support reconciliation and also expect governments to act. As support and commitment to braver action grows, the capacity of Reconciliation Australia to drive change must also be enhanced.
The next federal government, working across the Parliament, must place reconciliation at the heart of its work. That’s why Reconciliation Australia has created this roadmap to outline the path the government must take to achieve reconciliation.
