That the Assembly resolve:
(a) To request the General Secretary, within the next triennium, to establish a process by which facilitated conversations can be held with National Conferences about Sovereignty and Treaty and what it means to be Second Peoples.
(b) To request the Assembly Resourcing Unit, working with the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC), to create opportunities and processes to encourage and develop covenant relationships between UAICC and National Conferences, noting that these covenants could include:
- opportunity for National Cross-Cultural workshops;
- the development of Reconciliation Action Plans; and
- opportunities to be part of ‘Walking on Country’ experiences with Congress members.
Members of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities within the UCA are genuinely interested in learning more about the Covenant the UCA has with Congress and the UCA understanding of important issues such as sovereignty and treaty. Further, CALD communities are interested in exploring how they can develop Covenantal relationships in their communities.
