    Climate Justice Union will be organising a visit to the Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation for members.

    This is an intentional event and a part of our work to ensure we are actively engaging in an ongoing process of decolonisation as individuals and as a community. We invite members to embark on a journey of deep listening and learning.

    "Dumbartung is a Nyoongah grass roots advocacy agency working to alleviate the suffering of trauma and pain associated with past Government policies of dispossession, displacement and religious disinheritance." - dumbartung.org.au

    Dumbartung is run by Robert and Selina Eggington who have been caring for Nyoongah culture, stories and artefacts for many years. You can learn more about the work they do on their website.

    One of Dumbartung's major projects was the highly acclaimed and successful Kyana festivals in 1991 and 1993. They recently celebrated 30 years since the festivals, where they reflected on the festivals' significance and legacy,  you can watch the event recording here.

    The trip will take place on May 17th from 9:45 AM - 1 PM. Dumbartung is located at 295 Manning Road, Waterford, WA.

    We will try to make sure everyone has access to transport on the day so don't hesitate to register if you don't have a reliable mode of transport for the day.

    There are 20 places available, so please register as soon as possible.

    There are costs involved with attending but we have many different ticket options to cater for all financial circumstances.

    Unfortunately, the venue has two steps upon entry and does not have accessible toilets. If this is a barrier to people please contact us to see if we can address this in a suitable way.

    If you have any questions, please email Jaime at jaime.yf@climatejusticeunion.org.

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.
