New website launched to drive national truth-telling

A new website aimed at empowering Truth-telling in Australia – Towards Truth – was launched Monday morning.

Organisers of the site describe it as the first attempt to document and analyse the vast catalogue of laws and government policies that have impacted the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people since colonisation

Towards Truth is a partnership between the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) and the UNSW Indigenous Law Centre (ILC), with significant support from pro bono partners across the legal field.

The website compiles laws and policies that have impacted First Nations people from 1788 until today, as well as government documents, reports, media articles and case studies that show their practical effects.
