WSCLC Celebrates NAIDOC Week


NAIDOC week is celebrated during the first week in July and this year the NAIDOC theme is Heal Country! NAIDOC celebrates the history, cultures, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

WSCLC was excited to attend and participate at NAIDOC events in our community of Western Sydney, however, due to the unforeseen COVID-19 lockdown across Greater Sydney, services made the difficult decision to postpone NAIDOC events.  We are incredibly grateful to the following services that welcomed WSCLC to participate at their NAIDOC events: COOEE festival (Mount Druitt), Merana (Richmond), Riverstone Neighbourhood Centre, Sydney Regional Aboriginal Corporation (SRAC in Penrith), Babaayn (Emerton) and Burramatta (Parramatta). SRAC anticipates celebrating NAIDOC in November to coincide with their 25th-year Anniversary celebration as Sydney Region Aboriginal Corporation. 

Despite the current restrictions, WSCLC programs joined online NAIDOC events and the CLCP and ALAP teams celebrated NAIDOC online for morning tea on 19 July, to talk about the history, cultures, and how we can increase access to justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

The WSCLC programs are looking forward to NAIDOC events to celebrate in person towards the end of the year!
