MEDIA RELEASE

Australia Day

The NBL acknowledges that today brings about pain for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
 
“In order to move forward in this country, we must acknowledge and understand our past,” the NBL’s First Persons and Multicultural Support Liaison, Janelle McQueen, said.
 
“The 26th of January is a painful day for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and Australian Indigenous communities. On today, and all days, we stand with those communities who have been affected by the wrongs of Australia’s past.
 
“There is a way forward. Through education, awareness, understanding and reconciliation, we can all continue our commitment to creating meaningful change in the future and correcting past wrongs.”
 
The NBL also acknowledges the freeing of the Aboriginal flag of copyright constraints would be a moment to celebrate for its Aboriginal staff, players and fans.
 
As of Monday the 24th of January, the flag belongs to all Australians.
 
“As a league we remain committed to the recruitment, retention and professional development in basketball of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples,” NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said.
 
“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have left an indelible mark on the NBL’s past and present, and they will continue to inspire generations into the future.
 
“The NBL continues to use its position as a leading sporting organisation to bring all people together and create a stronger and safer future.”
