ANTaR has been working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and leaders on rights and reconciliation issues since 1997. ANTaR is an independent, national network of organisations and individuals working in support of Justice, Rights and Respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.
ANTaR is an independent non-government organisation and is non-party-political.
ANTaR's purpose has always been to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people speaking for themselves, rather than to speak for them. ANTaR works closely with national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and leaders and has an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reference Group which provides ANTaR with direction and feedback.
Stephen Garrett has worked with ANTaR since 2000 in roles involving financial management, fundraising, and systems development. Good Reason helped ANTaR to move to CiviCRM in 2013 and coordinated the development of a new website, on-line store and on-line donations. We continue to provide database support and development on an ongoing basis for ANTaR.
