Event description

Join us for our July FORUM - Mark Waters presenting on Critical Issues facing the future of Australia

'I’m Not Racist, But…!'

Drawing upon his experience as State Manager of Reconciliation SA (2010 – 2019), Mark will focus upon our understanding of race and racism in Australia. As well as expounding the Christian message of reconciliation, he will explore what reconciliation means in a post 2023 Referendum world. With the presentation being held just before NAIDOC Week in 2024, it will be timely to look at what we celebrate in the Australian community as well as what we stand to represent. Racism, who’s problem is it? What needs to be done to address it? What is our personal commitment and cost in combatting racism?

Mark’s lifetime passion for social work includes serving the Hindley Street Youth Project, Reconciliation SA and Palliative Care South Australia. In the 2000’s he was employed at Uniting Care Wesley Port Adelaide as Manager of Employment Access (EA) supporting people with mental health issues to have supported employment. Mark is a life member of SACOSS and helped to establish the Health Consumers Alliance in S.A. For over 40 years he has been involved in local congregations. He continues to support First Nations aspirations and is currently active on the Synod of South Australia Covenanting Committee. Mark remains active as an advocate for CALD, consumer health, young people, mental health, social policy, and workforce skills training.
