Pay the Rent is not accountable to rent payers about how Rent is paid. But we are accountable to mob. We planned to have regular meetings to report back to community. The first meeting was held in February 2020 at the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service, but Coronavirus stopped us holding further meetings. We’re trying to creatively think about how to do this community accountability.
All decisions about how Rent is spent and administered are made by a Sovereign Body – 8 Indigenous people. Link coming soon to see who is on this body.
Rent money is spent on both community’s survival needs and to fight for justice.
