Truth and Justice

On 4 July 2024 the Greens introduced the Truth and Justice Commission Bill 2024 to the Senate, who have referred the Bill to the Joint Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs for inquiry and report by 11 February 2025.

This is a very significant step forward in advancing the Uluru Statement from the Heart – which is at the heart of the Unley Support Group’s longstanding interest and remains at the heart of our Group’s interests.

The Bill is intended to establish a Commission to inquire into and make recommendations to Parliament on particular matters relating to historic and ongoing injustices against First Peoples in Australia and the impacts of these injustices on First Peoples.

The Committee invites written submissions addressing any or all aspects of the Bill by Friday, 6 September 2024.

Submissions to the inquiry must be prepared solely for this purpose and should not be published prior to being accepted by the Committee.

Prospective submitters should note that the Committee does not intend to accept submissions that do not specifically address the provisions of the Bill.
