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.
