RAC acknowledges and pays respects to the Traditional Custodians throughout Australia.
We recognise the continuing connection to land, waters and community.

We walk alongside Aboriginal people on the Reconciliation journey

Our Reconciliation Action Plan focuses on:

Relationships

Building strong and lasting relationships is a key pillar in our plan towards reconciliation. Developing and maintaining respectful relationships is the foundation of mutually beneficial and sustainable opportunities.

Respect

Respect is built on the understanding and acceptance of our individual and collective differences. We aim to build on this understanding and create acceptance and respect through these activities.

As an organisation we are focused on the future of our growing State, however we rely heavily on our collective history and believe that only by learning, acknowledging and embracing it can we create an inclusive and progressive WA.

RAC will also benefit from the initiatives included in the RAP by improving and enhancing our own cultural awareness, which we can share with our members, stakeholders and networks.

Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia where all peoples have equal opportunity in a society that learns, embraces and benefits from all cultures. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
