for National Reconciliation Week

As we get toward the end of National Reconciliation Week and into Mabo Day, we recognise that non-Indigenous settler society has a responsibility to listen, learn and act for First Nations justice every week of the year.

There is no environmental justice without First Nations justice.

With this in mind, we invite Wilderness Society supporters to reflect on First Nations experiences and perspectives through stories and resources, be ready to act where appropriate.
