The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, Mick Gooda, has unveiled a new website to provide practical information about the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (the Declaration).
The website informs Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about their human rights and encourages people to use these principles in their daily lives. The website includes a copy of the Declaration, as well as videos clips about how to reinvigorate it.
'The Declaration is the most comprehensive tool we have available to advance and protect the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. I use the Declaration as my guide as Social Justice Commissioner. It is the foundation upon which my agenda has been built,' said Mr Gooda.
