Mercy In Action

Australian Indigenous

We have a long history of working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in regional, rural and urban areas, in policy think tanks and in advocacy networks. These works have been undertaken, in some parts of Australia, for over 100 years.

In the last twenty years, despite the best efforts of many, the socio-economic situation of indigenous peoples and their rights to self-determination has improved very little. It is for this reason that we remain committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in their struggles for justice and we continue to work in partnership with these people in many ministries, recognising their special place in Australian society.
