In recognition of National Reconciliation Week 2021 and Reconciliation Day in the ACT, the ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) is inviting ACT community sector workplaces to share via this online form your response to the question below:
"How is your workplace taking action, more than words, to be more effective with actively addressing and speaking up about issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?" (approx. 400 words or less)
Every workplace which submits an entry gets a 2021 calendar by Marrawuy Journeys (while stocks last).
Major prize draw: Your workplace will be entered into the draw for over $300 worth of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander resources such as:
- a screenprinted fabric from Babarra Women’s Centre, Maningrida NT

- 'Moth Hunters of the ACT' by Josephine Flood
- 'Footprints on our Land: Aunty Agnes' DVD
