Recognising, respecting and reconciling
The Uniting Church hopes for a nation that acknowledges the rights of Indigenous Australians as the first people of this land, respects the land on which we live, and is committed to empowering Indigenous people to take control of their own lives and destinies.
A key component of our justice work is to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians together and to support the Indigenous community generally. We do this primarily through the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC).
We also recognise the pain and damage caused to our country’s native people through settlement and beyond. In 1997 we made a formal apology to the Stolen Generation and participate each year in National Sorry Day.
