We all know about the stolen generations. We didn’t always hear about those who opposed the law at the time

[Towards Truth] aims to document all the laws and policies that have affected First Nations people since white colonisation, is a collaboration between the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and the UNSW Indigenous Law Centre led by Cobble Cobble woman Professor Megan Davis.

“This project is the first of its kind in Australia,” Davis says. “It’s setting the foundations of a serious and evidence-based era of truth-telling that will feed into the Australia historical narrative.”

Towards Truth makes it clear that these policies were hotly contested at the time, and there were contemporary voices of dissent all along.
