Next Steps to Treaty
The Aboriginal Treaty Working Group has announced the next step for Treaty in Victoria.
Nominations opened in September for a Community Assembly, which will make recommendations on the governance, representation and structure of a Representative Body. During the last round of Community Consultations the Community demanded greater ability to have their say and this will take place through the Community Assembly.
The Community Assembly will be held in 2x 2.5 day blocks, on 15-17 November, and 29 November-1 December, in Melbourne. It will be representative of the diversity in the Victorian Aboriginal population.
See www.communityassembly.com.au for more information.
The Federation's Chair and Executive Officer are on The Aboriginal Treaty Working Group which was established in July 2016 to consult with Aboriginal communities and develop options for a representative body.
