Sara and Misty present at Amnesty International WA's Indigenous Rights Group eveninng
Nyoongar Wellbeing & Sports staff Sara Misty have been working hard across the Nyoongar community they have developed relationships with other organisations that have the same passion and objective, as a result were invited along to speak at WA's Amnesty International Indigenous Rights Group event "An evening of conversation and film".
The evening was guided by themes of hope, inspiration, resilience, and community, the evening seeks to raise awareness about Amnesty's 'Community Is Everything' campaign and introduce the community to the Indigenous Rights Group's grassroots advocacy work.
One of the groups aims is to showcase and promote community-led initiatives as a solution to the over-representation of Indigenous youth in the justice system.
The format of the evening covered a variety of topics and speakers from a range of backgrounds:
- Welcome to Country by Joseph Wallam
- Panel discussion with:Jeremy Garlett (Board of Directors, Peedac), Sara Riches and Misty Gray (Nyoongar Wellbeing & Sports), and Trooth (Artistic Director, Creating Freedom Australia)
- Screening of short film Gamarada
Both Sara and Misty did exceptionally well and left all attendees inspired by the work and impact NWS are having on the Nyoongar community. Well done!
We are excited to be part of this group, helping to improve health and wellbeing of Indigenous youth.
