Join us at the annual WALGA Aboriginal Engagement and Reconciliation Forum, themed ‘Kanan- Dhabagarn –Wabirriny’ (Truth - Justice - Healing). The forum will be a day of learning, and a celebration of the partnership between Local Governments and their Aboriginal communities. Hear from Hon Dr Tony Buti MLA, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Aboriginal Keynote Daniel Morrison and engage with our Aboriginal Leaders who are driving change within our communities.

To support Local Governments to understand the importance of providing leadership to inspire change, the Forum will cover hurdles and potential solutions, plus inspirational examples of driving positive change to support reconciliation and a better shared future for all. 

Our MC Roanna Edwards will guide attendees through a journey of reflection. Roanna will be joined by other inspirational speakers such as representatives from the Gnulla Karnany Waangkiny (Our Truth Telling) project in Toodyay. 

We will also hear from speakers such as Social Reinvestment W.A on the work they are doing to support local communities through the exploration, establishment and implementation of justice reinvestment initiatives. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a workshop led by Danjoo Koorliny on how to drive positive change.
