GET UP, STAND UP, SHOW UP.
This year’s NAIDOC theme, GetUp! Stand Up Show Up! is powerful and timely.
The NAIDOC Committee’s vision for the theme is
‘We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for
systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.
It must be a genuine commitment by all of us to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and
support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative
Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms.
We need to move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty
words and promises, and hollow commitments. Enough is enough.
The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the
proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.”
This NAIDOC we encourage you to reflect on what is your commitment to
taking action so together we can Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
Worried about the Run | Walk bit? It’s all good, we’ve got
something for everyone! The most important thing is that we get moving, no
matter what that looks like so…
Lace up the runners,
Pump up the bike tyres,
Bring back the skateboard,
Grab the kid’s scooters,
Dust off the hiking boots…
Cover off your chosen distance any way you like!
