I was in Fremantle today buying books for Indigenous Literacy Day, and I finally got a photo in front of the Aboriginal Flag mural on Elder Place. Indigenous Literacy Day is a national celebration of Indigenous culture, stories, language and literacy. The day draws our attention to the disadvantages experienced in remote communities and encourages the rest of Australia to raise funds and advocate for more equal access to literacy resources for remote communities. Simply put, kids in remote communities need books to read. Foundation patron and author @dranitaheiss says that literacy is essential to Aboriginal people s self-determination. If we cannot read we cannot make the decisions that inevitably impact on our lives. Donate a book or funds via their website: www.indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au

Tonight some of our Impact100 Fremantle donors gathered to have a Yarn with Aggie and Anna from @icea_foundation. Yarn is exactly that - a yarn! A safe space to have courageous conversations about race, racism and reconciliation. Through open discussion and interactive learning, Yarn works to eliminate ignorance and challenge some of the inherited attitudes and biases that prevent reconciliation from moving forward. We recommend you check out some of ICEA s upcoming community yarns and experience it for yourself! http://www.iceafoundation.com.au/icea-calendar
