Justice Connect's Reconciliation Action Plan

31 May 2018
Justice Connect’s vision for reconciliation is for a fair and just Australia built in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. Every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person deserves a fair chance at a better life.

We believe in a society in which legal systems are accessible and accountable, rights are respected and advanced, and laws are fairer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We are committed to ensuring that we are an organisation that is culturally safe, respectful and welcoming of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Justice Connect recognises the richness and depth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, the custodianship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over the world’s oldest surviving cultures, and the strength and resilience that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have shown in the centuries since European occupation. We also acknowledge the deep value that participation in the reconciliation journey brings to all Australians.

We acknowledge that we work and live on stolen land, in a country whose sovereignty was never ceded. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of that land, and their elders past, present and emerging. 

This is our Reconciliation Action Plan, and we are committed to meeting the targets we have set ourselves.
