This year's theme - 'Be Brave. Make Change.' - encourages each and every one of us to explore how we can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Ensuring equal access

Latrobe City Mayor Kellie O'Callaghan encouraged all local residents to consider what they can do to enact positive change. "We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation and building communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and futures. We are committed to ensuring equal access to a fair system, which protects the rights of individuals and is responsive to community needs."

"Working in partnership with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community we want to ensure their culture is respectfully maintained and promoted. I urge all Latrobe City residents to think about how they can contribute to reconciliation not just during this week, but all year round." Cr O'Callaghan said.
