Treaty for Victoria - First Peoples' Assembly of Victoria

Treaty for Victoria

Allira and Jarvis from the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria visited The Torch to have a yarn about the path to Treaty. After a challenging year, it is heartwarming to hear about the hard work being done by this mob.

Treaty is our opportunity to make sure we always have the freedom and power to make the decisions that affect our communities, our cultures and our Country.

If you’re mob, the single most important thing you can do to help make Treaty a reality, is enrol with the Assembly. You can enrol with the Assembly if you are a Traditional Owner of Country in Victoria (living either in Victoria or interstate) or an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who has lived in Victoria for at least three of the last five years, and are 16 years old or over.

If you are a Victorian Traditional Owner who is living outside of Victoria or are in prison, homeless, in out-of-home care, in the armed forces or wish to enrol as a silent voter, you can also enrol by post.

If you’re not eligible to enrol, you can still become an ally by signing up to Team Treaty to receive updates and information about how you can help.
