I am a non aboriginal person.

I endorse the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

I accept the statement's prioritization of Voice then Treaty then Truth

I am disappointed that governments have refused to support the Statement in its entirety

I want the codesign process to be enshrined in Australian legislation, with the voice to the Parliament and to the Government of the day.

I want the enactment to include a funding mechanism that ensures capability building such as the Future Funds, so thatany change in funding requires parliamentary approval not the government of the day.

We need our promised, funded referendum now!

Put a stop to the ongoing reform inertia and make this happen!

Land was not ceded. Colonization has impacted severely, First Nations peoples. There has been decades of work undertaken by First Nations people to get to this point. We need the referendum once the model for the voice is settled. there must be enabling legislation for the Voice. The Voice must have a funding mechanism to enhance the capability of First Nations people.
