Anti-Discrimination NSW


NAIDOC week 3 -10 July 2016

Published: ​3 July 2016

NAIDOC week has come around again and the Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW will be joining in for the week long celebration. 

NAIDOC is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.

We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week.​
