Aboriginal Advancement League
one of several organisations established in the Australian states from the 1930s, with the aim of campaigning for recognition of injustices suffered by Aboriginal people and helping them to achieve full citizenship and social justice.
In the early years of their formation, Aboriginal Advancement Leagues had a large proportion of non-Aboriginal members. One of their main aims was to work for full citizenship for Aboriginal people. After the achievement of this in 1967 there was an increase in Aboriginal membership, and concerns moved to issues such as health, housing, land rights and the preservation of Aboriginal culture and heritage. The remaining bodies, such as the Aborigines Advancement League (Vic), which was formally established in 1957, have become important Aboriginal self-help agencies.
