Have your say at community consultations

To deliver a treaty, the Victorian Aboriginal community needs to be fully informed and engaged.

What will come and be decided in the coming months and years out of these meetings will long outlive our place on this earth and will flow to our children, grandchildren and their children.

Treaty Circle Facilitators

We're keen to hear from Victorian Aboriginal community members who want to make the Treaty happen. Treaty Circle Facilitators capture the voices of their communities and help drive the pathway to Treaty.

The location and time of each Treaty Circle is up to each Treaty Circle
Facilitator, but they need to happen before April 13 2017. It is up to the
Facilitator to ensure each Treaty Circle is a safe and inclusive space.
