SCCNSW

Advocacy, support and networking platform for the people from Global South

What we do

Southern Communities Council

is a pluralist organisation with representations from Oceania, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Latin America. The SCC Board, one of the very few amongst Australian organisations, comprises local Aboriginal Elders. The rationale for advocacy for southern communities is due to the fact that these communities were adversely impacted by dual hegemonic suppression in the past:
1. incapacitated infrastructures and public institutions due to colonisation
2. restricted access to public resources due to 1960s policies and lack of representation by southern people in governance and decision-making bodies and processes.

Despite having diverse and disparate backgrounds, the members of Southern Community Council are deeply committed to ecology (nature), community and peace. Other commonalities among SCC members:
1. we are committed advocates and enablers and
2. we work to create possibilities for the diverse community groups in NSW.
