Black Lives Matter - Information & Cultural Exchange

Black Lives Matter

Our hearts are with those fighting for justice and accountability in the US. We also acknowledge that racialised police injustice is not an issue exclusive to the US.

Here, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders face the highest incarceration rates globally (1), with over 400 Blak deaths in custody since the royal commission in 1991(2).

Below is a list of anti-racist resources, places you can donate, ways you can act.
We encourage others who have a platform to consider how they occupy online space at the moment.
