The Issues

ANTAR campaigns nationally on a broad scope of key issues for First Nations people and communities. Our focus has evolved over the years to address critical issues of the time.

Current focus issues include Cultural HeritageJustice, VoiceNative Title, Treaty, Closing the Gap, and Survival Day.

The Issues

Cultural Heritage

What is First Nations cultural heritage? What is the history of cultural heritage in Australia and where we are up to now? Join the movement for stronger cultural heritage protection.

The Issues

Voice

The constitutional enshrinement of a First Nations Voice to Parliament is crucial to recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ right to self-determination and honouring the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

The Issues

Justice

The over-representation of First Nations Peoples in the criminal justice system, including the criminalisation and incarceration of First Nations children, is one of the most significant social justice issues in Australia today.

The Issues

Closing the Gap

ANTAR has long advocated for governments to address health and other inequalities that disproportionately affect First Nations Peoples. There are systemic, entrenched and pervasive inequities that burden First Nations people and communities and impact life outcomes overall.

The Issues

Native Title

On 3 June 1992, Eddie Koiki Mabo of Mer Island won his peoples’ native title claim when the High Court of Australia ruled to overturn the lie of terra nullius. 30 years on, take action and sign our petition to make Mabo Day a national public holiday.

The Issues

Treaty

Australia needs treaties with the First Nations Peoples of this continent to move forwards together – it’s time for Treaty.

The Issues

Survival Day

26 January is not the date to celebrate. It’s a day for respecting the survival of First Nations Peoples in the face of systematic ongoing injustice. We need a national day that brings all Australians together, rather than divides us.
