ALA Reconciliation Action Plan
ALA’s second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan was launched at National Conference 2022.
The ALA’s vision for reconciliation is an Australia that knows and acknowledges the history of colonisation and dispossession, supports a First Nations voice in the Constitution and completes the process of Makarrata in order for there to be an inclusive national culture and identity.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan continues to play an important role in ensuring that the strategic direction of the ALA is inclusive of our commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It embraces and formalises our longstanding commitment to human rights and social justice through practical initiatives and policy advocacy.

The ALA launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan at National Conference 2019, formalising its commitment to reconciliation after years of advocating for justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
'Our vision for reconciliation ensures that we will work together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to promote their rights and help ensure that their voice is heard,' Andrew Christopoulos, ALA National President, said at the launch.
'I am confident that the value of our policy and advocacy work will be enhanced by developing stronger relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples so that their priorities, perspectives and values are genuinely reﬂected in our work.'
