Joining ANTaR is something we can do to make a difference. We can volunteer our services and/or give donations. At least get on the mailing list of ANTaR in your State. ANTaR Qld has a Political Strategy Task Group and a Public Awareness Task Group - some members are on both! Some people are on neither, but volunteer in the office or at events. In the long term, lasting social justice can be achieved only through widespread attitudinal change, so we plan a sustained public awareness campaign. We are in for the long haul.
We run monthly SEA OF IDEAS meetings usually in the form of a panel of guests and public forum to bring us up to date on vital issues. Our monthly ONE FIRE Listening Circles with Indigenous speakers in their own local communities are extremely popular. Our monthly weekend WORKSHOPS by Indigenous and non-Indigenous presenters have been booked out.
We have set in place a public speaking program to recruit and workshop public speakers to go to community groups with ANTaR's message. We run fund-raising celebrity dinners, auctions, and film nights. Politically, we run letter-writing campaigns, visit politicians, keep the media informed, in collaboration always with the Qld Indigenous Working Group. Our public awareness work is always carried out in collaboration with members of the local Murri community, many of whom are involved in running our functions.

Australian Citizens Statement on Native Title
This is a letter you can copy, sign and post if it echoes your feelings on this issue, and you wish to add your voice to the debate.
The aim of ACES is to provide services which are
based and culturally appropriate
to support the health and well-being of Aboriginal frail aged and elders in a Caring Place.
It is a deductible gift recipient, and needs to become partially self-funding, especially if it is to expand;
any donations would go towards programs like
linking elders to young Koori people, Land-Care groups, artists etc.
It's a great project with enormous potential for good and for goodwill;
one which AAR supports wholeheartedly.
Contact them directly if you would like more information.
