‘Lateral Love Australia’ and ‘The Decade of Lateral Love Around the World 2012 – 2022’ was launched to honour the late Jimmy Little.
His legacy of Love lives on through Lateral Love & Spirit of Care for all Humankind.
The Lateral Love movement is based on the principles of CARING, SHARING, NURTURING, LOVE and RESPECT.
We believe this is the way forward for our Aboriginal and Islander (including the Torres Strait) nations to enable true healing from the impacts of colonisation which has caused some of the serious Lateral Violence and Racism we see inflicted both upon first nations people and devastatingly by first nations people to each other still to this day.
During the ‘Decade of Lateral Love and Spirit of Care Around the World 2012 – 2022’ we are connecting, unifying and growing together in the ways our elders intended for us to do before cultural integrity was deliberately eroded away though colonisation.
With genuine encouragement and support we can empower our children and grandchildren to enable them to reach their full potential. To be able to reach our full potential every human beings right in this world.
Lateral Love Ambassadors are people from all walks of life, many different backgrounds and language groups not only within Australia but right around the world.
“To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.” –Confucius 551~479 B.C.
If you believe in Lateral Love and agree with Confucius’s observation above maybe you would like to join our Lateral Love Ambassadors team. Please email Nicola and Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
