PPCG recognises the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples every day of the year. The Uluru Statement from The Heart invites all Australians to walk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people towards a better future.
The Port Phillip Community Group (PPCG) supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
We believe that it offers a historic opportunity to support justice for First Peoples.
As a community organisation we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Peoples as the First Peoples of Australia. We respect their enduring connection to the land and country and believe reconciliation is important to create fair and more inclusive relationships.
We are committed to enact our values of respect, equity, inclusiveness and empowerment in our work and in doing so contribute to social justice for First Nations people and all in the Port Phillip Community. Together we can build a more equitable society for all Australians.
We support a constitutionally enshrined First Nations Voice to Federal Parliament to ensure First Nations’ views and aspirations are heard in all decision making. This is one important step in the broader journey for First Nations Peoples’ justice and reconciliation.
We respect that every person will make their own decision independently for the referendum.
