One of our core values as an organisation is Belonging. We want to build a community where everyone is welcome. Where everyone feels and is seen, heard, listened to, accepted, supported, and most importantly celebrated no matter what their race, class, gender, and abilities are. This is our True North and we hope it is yours too.
We cannot pursue our purpose without the support, love, and guidance of the community. We need each and every one of you. Consider volunteering with us today.
Never miss an update from us.
We acknowledge the Wallumattagal clan of the Darug nation as the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which Women of Colour Australia is situated. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge and honour the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with whom we stand in solidarity. We acknowledge that as settlers on this stolen Aboriginal land, we are beneficiaries of the dispossession, genocide, and ongoing colonial violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We believe that it is our collective responsibility and moral imperative to help dismantle the systemic barriers and structural inequities oppressing the original inhabitants of this land. We are also painfully aware that this land was taken forcibly, without a Treaty or reparations made. We have taken a practical step towards honouring sovereignty by paying the rent – and we invite you to do so too. This land is and always will be Aboriginal land. Sovereignty was never ceded.
