As it is 50 years since the 1967 referendum and 25 years since the Mabo decision all Australians are asked to be part of the next big steps in Australia’s reconciliation journey.

Legal Stories - connecting communities through legal education
Legal Stories is a new community legal education resource developed to help people identify legal problems that can crop up in everyday life and work out what action they might take to try to sort them out.
The resource focuses on four areas of civil law identified by the James Cook University Indigenous Legal Needs Project, as affecting the lives of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in WA: identification, debt, cyber bullying and driver's licence suspension.
Legal Stories is aimed at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote WA who might be affected by these issues, the family and friends of people who might be affected, and a range of local community workers. The resource is made up of a series of videos, photo boards, handouts and background notes for community legal educators in remote WA. It can be used in many ways to suit different audiences.
