Reconciliation takes another positive step in City of Logan

Interactive library sessions, public art installations, Deadly Digital stories,
ambassadors and walking for reconciliation were part of the City of Logan’s second reconciliation action plan.

Logan City Council is one of more than 750 organisations and 43 local governments
nationally to adopt the national Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) framework.

This framework helps drive reconciliation and allows Council to take steps to close
the gap within its sphere of influence.

To celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2020 in a COVID-safe way, Council
hosted an internal Walk for Reconciliation event.

Throughout the week 176 Council staff and their walking companions walked 1348
kilometres to show their support for reconciliation and a shared future for all.

City Lifestyle Committee Chairperson Councillor Laurie Koranski said Council’s
progress since launching its first RAP in 2015 had been significant.

“Council acknowledges the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander people and values the relationship we continue to build with Logan’s First
Nations communities,” Cr Koranski said.

“We are committed to progressing and driving reconciliation in the City of Logan.

“Our commitment so far has generated momentum, strong foundations and
enthusiasm from across the organisation to continue and extend this work.”

Council’s second RAP, running from June 2019 to December 2020, included 55
practical actions and 42 or about 90 per cent of these have now been achieved.

“We look forward to finalising the remaining items in our second RAP and working
with Council staff and the community to develop our third RAP,” Cr Koranski said.
