The Pride Parade March returns to James St Northbridge and will be much more interactive and a lot easier to manage the logistics for all.

Perhaps you have been considering adding an Acknowledgement of Country to your meeting procedures but you are not sure how to proceed or perhaps not all members are supportive of the idea. Perhaps your club wants to do a project with an Aboriginal Community but needs some resources to help with the process. Perhaps members would like to be better informed about the Uluru Statement from the Heart, the Voice to parliament, a future Makarrata (truth telling) or a Treaty with Aboriginal people. No matter at which point your club is along the cultural awareness spectrum, Ros Marshall, Chair of the Rotary D9455 Aboriginal Reference Group (ARG) is available to talk to you.
If you would like to find out more about the ARG before planning to invite Ros to speak to the club, have a look at our excellent website at www.rotaryarg.org.au. The website contains a wealth of information about past successful Rotary projects from across the state. It also provides a manual for respectful engagement with the Aboriginal community and huge range of other resources to raise cultural awareness.
Why not invite Ros to be a guest speaker at your club? Presentations are tailormade to suit your club’s specific requirements.
