This week the Victorian Parliament is considering a Bill that takes the first steps in establishing a Treaty with Traditional Owners. We urge all members of the Victorian Parliament to support the Treaty advancement process. Recognising the rights of the Traditional Owners of the land on which all we live and work and supporting self-determination are important steps towards achieving reconciliation.

We acknowledge the great suffering caused to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through the generations. As part of the Uniting Church, we are committed to walking together as First and Second Peoples.
