Making Indigenous Poverty History in Australia

Some churches in Australian are calling on a campaign to make indigenous poverty history in Australia. Indigenous leaders in Australia have had to continually remind Australian Christians that the poverty in indigenous communities has been largely ignored for the past two hundred years. The National Council of Churches in Australia is calling on Australians to remember the injustices done against indigenous people; recognize and implement the changes recommended by indigenous people and national investigations such as Royal Commissions into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody and the "Stolen Generations" report; and rectify the poverty itself.
