A dialogue with the Yoorrook Commission
What is the responsibility of truth telling in the wider community?
The Yoorrook Justice Commission commenced its work in 2021 with the powers of a Royal Commission to investigate historical and on-going injustices experienced by First Peoples in Victoria. Over the past two years, Commissioners have been hearing testimonies and gathering information from First Peoples to understand the diverse impacts of colonisation. At the conclusion of its truth telling process, Yoorrook will make recommendations for healing, system reform, and practical changes to laws, policy, and education, as well as to matters to be included in future treaties.
The Commission now welcomes submissions beyond First Nations communities, inviting all Victorians to take part in the truth telling process.
Come and participate in a timely dialogue with Yoorrook Commissioners and staff. This will be a great opportunity to hear about the work they have been doing, the transformative aims of this work, and to join a discussion of truth telling as shared responsibility.
