CMR Focus: Community

Right across Victoria, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities are marching forward in solidarity to reclaim their independence and self-determination. In many cases they are doing this despite adverse social conditions and trans-generational and lived trauma.

Connection Matters Radio commits to reporting on as many of these positive stories as possible. In this, CMR is helping to break down the walls of ignorance and show new light on the reality of our people across the State of Victoria.
