Reconciliation in Action

The recent launch of the website Towards Truth is another step in our nation’s journey to understanding.

To understanding the full history of the colonisation of this continent.

And just as importantly, to understanding the intergenerational impacts of successive laws and policies on Aboriginal communities, families and individuals.

Laws and policies that were targeted and designed to force assimilation, often using coercive powers to ensure compliance.

Towards Truth is a joint initiative between the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and the University of NSW Indigenous Law Centre.
