  • Die Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship (AAF) wurde 1956 durch Pearl Gibbs und Faith Bandler gegründet 1956. Die AAF war eine politische Organisation, die Aborigines und Nicht-Aborigines für soziale und politische Rechte zusammenführte. Gibbs erkannte, dass es bei einer Durchsetzung von Interessen der Aborigines im Aborigines Welfare Board von New South Wales, der Hilfe und Unterstützung der weißen Bevölkerung bedarf. In dieser Organisation waren Mitglieder der Communist Party of Australia, Künstler, Schriftsteller, Mitglieder der jüdischen Gemeinden und der christlichen Kirchen vertreten. Beachtung fand die AAF erstmals als sie am 29. April 1957 als sie in der Sydney Town Hall am 29. April 1957 ein Treffen durchführte und eine Protestnote verabschiedete, die verlangte, dass die Regierung direkt für die Angelegenheiten der Aborigines haftbar gemacht werden muss. Die AAF führte Kampagnen gegen das rigide Verbot von Alkohol für Aborigines, gegen rassistische Diskriminierung in öffentlichen Einrichtungen, wie Schulen, Schwimmbädern und Filmtheatern in New South Wales durch und setzte sich für die Verbesserung der schulischen Ausbildung für Aborigines ein. Pearl Gibbs erreichte, dass die AAF Beziehungen zu den Gewerkschaften in New South Wales entwickelte und war der erste Präsident der AAF. Die AAF war vertreten als das Federal Council for Aboriginal Advancement im Jahre 1958 in Adelaide gegründet wurde und sie löste sich im Jahre 1969 auf, als die Aborigines eigene Organisationen aufbauten.
  • The Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship (AAF) was a Sydney-based organisation focused on changing the New South Wales Aborigines Protection Board, the wider issues of wage parity and full citizenship for Aboriginal Australians. The organisation was founded in 1956 by a group of Aboriginal (Pearl Gibbs, , , , and Grace Bardsley) and non-Aboriginal (Faith Bandler, , and Len Fox) social activists, with the intention of creating a partnership between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to achieve social justice for Aboriginal people. They saw the need to educate non-Indigenous people about some of the injustices and discrimination suffered by Aboriginal people. Groves was the inaugural president of the association. Charlie Leon's wife Peggy was also a member of the executive. The first public meeting was held in Sydney Town Hall on 29 April 1957, where the AAF launched a petition drafted by Jessie Street, an Australian suffragette and committee member of the Anti-Slavery and Aborigines' Protection Society in London, calling on the federal government to change the Constitution to alter certain clauses in it which discriminated against Aboriginal people. A number of other organisations, including trades unions and the Union of Australian Women, affiliated themselves and helped to distribute the petition. Charlie Leon succeeded Groves as president, serving from 1958 to 1967 and in1969. Delegates from the Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship attended the conference in Adelaide and joined the Federal Council for Aboriginal Advancement (FCAA) when it was founded in February 1958. It was one of the left-wing Aboriginal affiliates of the FCAA, who became the majority voting bloc in 1962 when the (NTCAR) joined in 1962. (The others were the (Queensland) and the Council for Aboriginal Rights (Victoria)). The AAF held its first New South Wales conference in October 1961, at which a resolution was passed calling for the repeal of the Aborigines Protection Act 1909 (NSW) and a campaign launched straight afterwards. The campaign included demonstrating at meetings of the major parties during the March 1962 New South Wales state election, and kept up the pressure afterwards, targeting the Labor premier Bob Heffron. In August 1962, Section 9 of the Aborigines Protection Act 1909 was repealed, allowing the consumption of liquor by Aboriginal people. The Fellowship also lobbied for land rights reform, with Charlie Leon, who was also a member of the Aborigines Protection Board, developing a plan for the historically Aboriginal area of La Perouse (which was and is the longest-functioning Aboriginal community in Sydney, with Aboriginal people having lived there for thousands of years before colonisation began in 1788). The NSW Housing Commission eventually bowed to pressure and built suitable accommodation and an historical and cultural centre for the residents. The Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship issued a bulletin called Fellowship. It dissolved in 1969, as other, Aboriginal-run, organisations took over the work that it had been doing.
