Reconciliation Victoria is the statewide body promoting reconciliation across Victoria. This means that we promote deeper understanding, respect and justice for and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our work focuses primarily on the 97% of Victorians who are not Aboriginal, as it is non-Aboriginal people who need to take responsibility for driving reconciliation. This work is guided by local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices.
We work closely with - and facilitate connections between - Local Reconciliation Groups and other community groups, the education sector, and state and local government partners. We organise the annual statewide reconciliation forums and promote National Reconciliation Week activities across Victoria.
We also respond to queries, and try to connect individuals up with groups which are already doing work to promote reconciliation in their local area.
