Our Reconciliation Journey

The Brotherhood of St. Laurence (BSL) is committed to working towards Reconciliation. We are working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to help achieve an Australia free of poverty.

Through our Reconciliation journey we work together, and learn from, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to build mutually respectful relationships through our Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan . We are also committed advancing the rights, equality and aspirations of First Nation Australians through our advocacy and support of a  Voice to Parliament  as well as the aspirations of the Uluru Statement of the Heart .

Our Journey


BSL has a vision for reconciliation that shows a country where Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples enjoy equal opportunities for participation in our community.
