A brighter future for all Australians is possible, and to get there we each need to play our part. When we hear statistics about First Nations disadvantage and listen to people’s stories of pain and injustice, most of us have a natural desire to do something to make things right. But many of us don’t know how. One of the most powerful ways you can make a difference is to increase your awareness and understanding.  
 
We’ve spoken to several people to help you get started, bringing together ideas and stories from those who’ve taken their first step in making a difference.

Find inspiration in stories and articles that show even little steps can lead to big change when we do things together.
