At this special event on Indigenous Literacy Day, activist Thomas Mayo will share a powerful address reflecting on the ongoing fight for justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wake of the failed Voice to Parliament referendum. Mayo will draw on the messages outlined in his new book, Always Was, Always Will Be: The Campaign for Justice and Recognition Continues, which maps the path forward for Indigenous and non-Indigenous supporters of the Voice towards a better future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Then, Mayo will be joined by a commissioner from the Yoorrook Justice Commmission, the first formal truth-telling process into injustices experienced by First Peoples in Victoria, to discuss pathways to treaty and how we can renew the momentum of reconciliation in Australia.
