ARC Justice acknowledges Aboriginal Peoples as the traditional and current custodians of the land upon which we work. We respect that this land always was and always will be Aboriginal land. Aboriginal sovereignty has never been ceded.
We pay our respect to Elders past and present, as well as all Aboriginal people who have fought, and continue to fight, for equality, self-determination, culture, Country and community.
We recognise systemic injustices that have been caused by colonisation and remain ongoing today. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves about these issues.
We aim to always respect and work with Aboriginal communities to bring justice. We know that we have a lot to learn and we are committed to doing this. We won’t always get it right, and we genuinely welcome feedback from community.
We celebrate the strength, culture, connection to Country, incredible resilience and contribution of Aboriginal Peoples to our whole community.
We are grateful for the knowledge and wisdom so many Aboriginal people have shared with us and we look forward to working together in the years ahead.
