From leading tens of thousands through the streets of Melbourne as part of the fight to change the date of Australia Day, to supporting and building the campaign for a treaty with First Nations people - young Indigenous people are challenging their schools, workplaces, and society to do better and do more for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
This NAIDOC week, we're proud to be hosting a panel of young Indigenous activists, including:
- Aretha Brown, an emerging leader in the Indigenous community
- Tarneen Onus-Williams, Indigenous social worker and founding member of Aboriginal Nations and Torres Strait Islander HIV Youth Mob
- Panel chair Edie Shepherd, a Young Workers organiser and Ballardung & Wiradjuri woman
- Further guests to be announced in the coming days
We'll be talking about some of the key issues affecting young Indigenous people at work and in life, with plenty of time for your questions too!
The Young Workers Centre strives to run inclusive and accessible events. Please contact Edie at [email protected] to discuss any necessary accessibility requirements.
