How to make a submission

Yoorrook, Victoria’s truth telling Commission, invites First Peoples to tell us about your experiences of injustice.

You can share the truth about any injustice you like by making a submission. For example truths about:

  • your local area
  • your family’s experiences
  • experiences of racism, forced removal from home and land, massacres, forced labour, cultural loss, intergenerational trauma, economic disadvantage and stolen wealth
  • acts of resistance and resilience

You can also make suggestions about changes you would like to see, such as changes to laws or policies.

Social and emotional wellbeing support and legal support is available to First People telling their truth.

Yoorrook’s Truth Receivers can also help you to put together your submission.
