By sharing the amazing efforts and tireless dedication of our recipients, we will remind the supporters of justice for Palestine of their noble ambitions and further shine a light on our hope for a just peace, and also inspire the next generation of advocates seeking justice for the Palestinians.

All Aboriginal people in Australia, like all Palestinian people, are impacted by the ongoing occupation of our homelands. The ongoing attempts to assimilate us, the ongoing and never-ending implications of settler colonialism that are not diminishing but getting stronger, impacts all people. When I see what is going on in occupied Palestine, it hurts me.
