Spread the Word about constitutional recognition

ANTaR Spread the WordSpread the Word” is a campaign run by ANTaR (Australia for Native Title and Reconciliation) to raise awareness about the constitutional recognition of Australia’s First Peoples.

ANTaR believes that constitutional recognition and Close the Gap are linked because we won’t be able to close the gaps in education and health unless we also close the gaps in respect and understanding. They believe that constitutional recognition can have a positive effect on the well being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
