This year's NAIDOC theme "Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!" is a call for action to bring about “systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.” This includes seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protection, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling and continuing to work towards treaties.

This impactful theme is about the desire to change the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians to one that is “based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights."

This year is a time to celebrate the many people who have driven and led change within Indigenous communities, and for everyone to show up and start being a part of this change. Whether you Indigenous or non-Indigenous now is the time for everyone to come together and ‘Stand Up’ for the rights and equity of First Nation Australians.
