RecTas champion a First Nations Voice to Parliament

by Brighton Council

Reconciliation Tasmania are working closely with other members of the Australian Rec­onciliation Network around the proposed First Nations Voice to Parliament.

The Voice was proposed in the Uluru Statement from the Heart back in 2017. The statement calls for “the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission to supervise a pro­cess of agreement-making and truth-telling about our history.”

The Australian Reconciliation Barometer found that 95% of Australians believe it’s important for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to have a say in matters that affect them.

With the Voice Referendum due to take place later this year, Rec­onciliation Tasmania will be run­ning programs across the state and are looking for volunteers to help get the word out about the referendum.
