I want the Government to honour its election commitment for a referendum so there is no doubt about whether Australians want a 'National Voice'. It is vital that only Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people are members of the 'National Voice'. After the referendum I want the 'National Voice' preserved in the Constitution. I want legislation to be enacted so that the 'National Voice' can inform Parliament and the Government on laws and polices that impact on Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people. This 'Voice' will allow Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people to have a say on laws, services and polices that impact them. We need to have better outcomes for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people and close the health and life expectancy gap.
