Pay the Rent is an organisation based in the Kulin Nation, Victoria, doing crucial work in bringing First Nations and non-First Nations people together to raise funding for grassroots campaigns or causes that protect the rights of First Nations Peoples.
As farmers, we understand the significance of working on stolen land, particularly with regard to how we use this land and its precious resources to grow and produce food. Last year, AFSA launched its First Peoples First Strategy as a roadmap towards decolonising Australia’s agricultural and food systems, and First Nations sovereignty. We are calling for recommendations from AFSA members to help us select an Indigenous-owned and led organisation to pay the rent to.
You can submit your recommendation here, with the chosen recipient to be selected through a transparent process in collaboration with AFSA members.
