    Here Are All The 2022 Invasion Day Events You Can Attend This Year To Lend Your Support

    Attend, show support and lend your voice to the movement.

    The notion of Australia Day, where people in the country celebrate the nation, sounds like a good one. But January 26 is also the anniversary of the invasion and colonisation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples — a traumatic part of Australian history that still impacts communities today.

    Issues surrounding life expectancy, death in custody and much more still impact First Nations peoples.

    As such, Jan 26 doesn't connote a sense of unity and togetherness — rather, it's a stark reminder that we, as a nation, are still brushing our history under the rug.
