History was made with the passage through the Victorian Parliament of Australia’s first ever Treaty legislation in June 2018.
Reconciliation Victoria extend our congratulations to the Aboriginal Community members and Government and other MPs who worked so hard together to take this historic step. We acknowledge there is still a huge amount of work to do to negotiate a Treaty and encourage you all to inform yourself about the process and get on board to lobby and advocate for an outcome that results in justice and self-determination for Victoria’s First Nations Peoples.
Reconciliation Victoria is pleased to have secured additional funding from the State Government to build community support and engage non-Aboriginal Victorians in supporting the Treaty process. This work will help us build the capacity and understanding of local government, local reconciliation supporters and the general public of the various roles they can play to support treaty.
