The Australia’s First Peoples Congress seeks new members
Posted: February 3rd, 2014
Facing potential funding cuts, the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples is calling for more members in a show of community support.
The Congress was funded by the previous Federal Government on a 3 year agreement due to end in 2017. The current Coalition Government has indicated it is unlikely to commit to this funding agreement.
The National Congress acts as the national representative body for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander peoples and is supported by a number of peak Indigenous organisations.
