Check out the powerful words from ABC Board Foundation Directors, Natasha Hunter and Helen Slater which they provided to Containers for Change WA about their thoughts on Reconciliation. ❤️💛🖤ABC Foundation is one of our incredible, majority Aboriginal owned foundations that operates refund points in Exmouth, Coral Bay, Carnarvon and Denham. They're passionate about Aboriginal people leading the growth of a sustainable land and sea economy and through Containers for Change they've been stopping containers going to landfill, and living their key ethos of 'Don't Rubbish Country' 🌱♻We had a chat with two of their Board Directors, Helen Slater and Natasha Hunter about what reconciliation means to them and what action is needed for it to be achieved 👇💬 "This week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and to explore how each of us can join the national reconciliation effort.💬 While reconciliation can mean different things to different people, for us here at ABC Foundation, Reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians."- Helen Slater, ABC Foundation Ltd Director 💬 "The past was the inception. The present is the indisputable. The future is inspiration.💬 What I mean by this is the colonisation process of stealing our land, branding us to low levels and inciting it within all other races over the decade is the Inception. What is the indisputable? IT HAPPENED! You can't undo it, you can't change it, but you can learn from it! And, the inspiration is caused by coming together to work on healing and hearing us." - Natasha Hunter, ABC Foundation Ltd DirectorBig thanks to Natasha and Helen for sharing 💚 Want to find out more about reconciliation?
