Who we are
Reconciliation Australia is the national organisation promoting reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader Australian community.
Our vision is for an Australia that recognises and respects the special place, culture, rights and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and where good relationships between First Australians and other Australians become the foundation for local strength and success; and the enhancement of our national wellbeing.
Our programs such as the Indigenous Governance Awards Project and the Reconciliation Action Plans, along with our advocacy and public education work, are about building sustainable frameworks for lasting change in Australia.
What is reconciliation?
There’s no single strand to reconciliation—and it is not an easy or straightforward process. What is clear however is that reconciliation is everyone’s business.
Reconciliation is about building better relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community for the benefit of all Australians.
If we are to improve relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and other Australians we need more people talking about the issues and coming up with innovative ways to create positive change.
We cannot do it alone. Join us in the reconciliation journey.
