OUR
GOALS
ANTAR’s goals, as determined by our Strategic Plan, 2019-2023.
1

To lead public discussions about unfinished business, truth-telling (treaty, justice, rights and respect) and a reconciled Australia from a nonIndigenous perspective, in solidarity and conjunction with First Nations leaders and organisations, by:

  1. Providing a platform for dialogue on Treaty and Agreement Making in Australia, working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander partner organisations and peoples;
  2. Actively engaging in the debates by facilitating research and policy discussions that contribute to the knowledge base; and
  3. Developing new ways to communicate to a growing base of supporters and engaged citizens (Social Media, Blogs, supporter communiqués etc.).
2

To educate the broader community about the history, cultures, lived experiences, languages and human rights of Australia’s First Peoples, by: 

  1. Providing an online clearinghouse for historical and contemporary documents, policies, news and events that is useful for schools, academics and engaged citizens;
  2. Commissioning and producing relevant and accessible educational, policy and issues briefs that can be translated for community engagement and advocacy; and
  3. Work with the ANTaR network of affiliates to disseminate relevant and informative content.
3

To build an active and engaged network of Australians committed to the achievement of justice, rights and respect for Australia’s First Peoples, by: 

  1. Continuing to be strong supporters of the national and state social justice campaigns that are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led (Close the Gap, Change the Record, Just Reinvest NSW etc.);
  2. Providing support to the ANTaR network through the State and Territory ANTaR affiliates and community groups who will continue to take the lead in grass roots advocacy and campaigning in their jurisdictions and communities across Australia.
4

To be an effective and efficient organisation that values partnerships and develops our people both professionally and culturally to enable us to achieve our goals, by:

  1. Building a strong team of dedicated staff, volunteers and interns that feel supported to make a contribution;
  2. Providing the best possible organisational infrastructure to deliver on the purpose – taking account of the website, branding, budgeting and other elements that will contribute to the effectiveness of the organisation; and
  3. Investing in our fundraising program to ensure it aligns clearly with ANTaR’s purpose and is able to support the strategic goals above.
