Reconciliation Australia

Reconciliation Australia was established in 2000. It is an independent, not-for-profit organisation set up by the former Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation. Reconciliation Australia is the peak national organisation that builds and promotes reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Reconcilation has recently written a position paper titled 10 Years after the bridge walks
Does reconciliation have a place in Australia today or is it a spent force, superseded by more tangible efforts towards “closing the gap”? If we are to move forward in post-apology Australia where many Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander citizens continue to endure poor life conditions, this question needs a
careful answer.

The website is rich in resources and up to date information on Reconciliation. The Myth busters page is one of my favourites, check it out.
