Redfern is a strong and proud Aboriginal community located in the heart of Redfern. It has been home to many Aboriginal people and it has always been a meeting place for us. We have had to stand strong and restore pride in ourselves and our community. As Aboriginal elders and leaders we have to pave the way to build a strong foundation for the next generation of children, based on respect and our traditional values in an urban environment.
We are overcoming the problems of the past and have had to reclaim our community by saying no to alcohol and drugs. It is important that we continue to foster relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. It is a new era, we want to encourage our community and other communities to connect with each other, and bring them closer using modern technology and the “Koori grapevine” for communicating and promoting community harmony.
There are also a lot of activities happening in your local community that you can be part of. We will keep you informed of community events and training opportunities, through regular newsletters and posters on our website.
