The Mount Druitt Local Action Group of Amnesty International Australia would like to invite Indigenous community members, Aboriginal Elders, representatives from Aboriginal organisations and services, local and state government members, local members of the community and teachers from our local schools to join us at Nurragingy Reserve for a free BBQ!
Our aim is to provide a platform in which we can introduce ourselves, connect with the indigenous community and encourage a local movement for our Community Is Everything campaign.
Amnesty International Australia is dedicated over the next five years to work alongside the Indigenous community to end the overrepresentation of Indigenous young people in the justice system . We recognise the resilience and strength of Indigenous communities and are committed to amplifying Indigenous voices and solutions to achieve equality in the justice system. Our aim is to safeguard the rights set out by the United Nations in the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which recognises the rights of Indigenous people and communities to control decisions affecting their own lives and futures.
Amnesty’s Indigenous rights campaign aims to complement the huge amount of human rights advocacy that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and organisations are doing across Australia and we would like to meet the local members doing so as well as collaborate to increase the support within the area and create larger public awareness.
For further information about the campaign and any inquiries, please do not hesitate to email or call the Mount Druitt Local Action Group's convenor Samantha Estrada on 0430974410.
