The Coalition of Peaks is a group of 50 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled peak bodies who represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in all areas important to our lives. These areas include health, legal aid, education, land and water rights, disability support, media and family violence. There are peaks at a national level and peaks who work in different States and Territories.
