Pause to consider the land on which you live.
For many, January 26 is a difficult time. On this day, our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters are feeling many emotions and are hurting, grieving, mourning, and commemorating survival. And today, we have a chance to stand with them, on the land we live, acknowledging the true history of this land.
On January 26, 2021, let's fill our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds with photos and public statements acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and what this day means to them.
Join in this powerful statement now
- Take a photo on the land you live on - If you are able, take off your shoes and head outside to take a photo of your feet.

Show your friends and followers that this generation is 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?
If you are able, take off your shoes and head outside to take a photo of your feet on the land you live on. If you want you can also take a photo with a few people, and share it together.
