This year we have tuned in together on tv, online and radio to #ChangeTheHeart of Australia, following the call of Aunty Jean Phillips and led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christian Leaders.

On January 26, as we continue to pray, mourn, commemorate survival and acknowledge the true history of these lands now called Australia, will you pledge your commitment to taking a stand for truth and justice by sharing a photo of your feet on country!

Let's use our Facebook feed for good and make a powerful statement - a generation making a peaceful stand, on the very day when Australians reflect on their national identity more than any other.

How do I take my photo?

We encourage you to take off your shoes and head outside to take a photo of your feet on the land you live on. If you're using your phone to take the photo, landscape orientation will work best (though you'll also be able to rotate it before posting). If you want you can also take a photo with a few people, and share it together. Then, write your acknowledgment of country (or use the one we provide), add it to this website then share it on your social media.
