Is there something you’ve always wanted to know about how to be an effective Ally to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
Only about 3% of the Australian population is Indigenous. That means, in a room of 30 people, only one is likely to be of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. We can’t leave it to the that one person to champion Reconciliation.
Many people tell us they would like to help, but they lack the confidence to take action and are afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing.
Our co-Director Carla Rogers has been working alongside First Nations people and communities for decades and, through trial and error, she’s learnt a thing or two about Allyship.
By sharing your questions and Carla’s answers below , we can learn together and develop our courage to create a kinder, more inclusive Australia.
