What does Oxfam Australia mean by “First Peoples”?

In this section, the First Peoples refers to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

What is “First Peoples justice”?

Despite 65,000 years caring for People and Country, today the First Peoples of Australia are too often excluded from the resources of their own country. By calling for First Peoples justice, our aim is to undo systemic inequality, challenge injustice, and achieve the change the First Peoples of Australia want to see.

How has Oxfam Australia been working with the First Peoples?

Oxfam Australia has a strong, 47-year history working as an ally with First Nations communities — supporting health services, campaigns, political empowerment and more — and we’re incredibly proud of the achievements of our First Peoples team.
