2. Current situation


Country Needs People applauded Labor’s 2019 policy as “visionary” however, with new leadership comes change. The ALP is currently reviewing the policies it took to the 2019 election. Throughout 2020, the ALP will continuously develop new policies that it wants to pitch to Australians. Country Needs People is nonpartisan - we reckon Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas demonstrate success every side of politics should get behind - and we think it’s important both major parties lift the bar on what we can achieve by growing and securing Indigenous ranger jobs and IPAs.

We are calling on the Australian Labor Party to recommit to doubling funding for Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas. Join us in sending a message to your local Labor MP and the Labor leaders and show them that supporting Indigenous rangers and IPAs is important to all Australians.
