YOUTH COALITION OF THE ACT 2014 - 2015 ANNUAL REPORT
The Youth Coalition of the ACT acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and continuing custodians of the lands of the ACT and we pay our respects to the Elders, families and ancestors.
We acknowledge that the effect of forced removal of Indigenous children from their families as well as past racist policies and actions continues today.
We acknowledge that the Indigenous people hold distinctive rights as the original people of modern day Australia including the right to a distinct status and culture, self-determination and land. The Youth Coalition of the ACT celebrates Indigenous cultures and the invaluable contribution they make to our community.
