This truly is the unfinished business of the nation - for the voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to have a voice and say in matters that affect them.

Australians want to move forward to a time of reconciliation and truth-telling. It is crucial that there is a place in our government where the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are heard - it is central to Australian life and our ability to heal our country together.

As a member of this community, I strongly stand by the need for a First Nations Voice to Parliament, protected by the constitution. I fully support the call for a referendum to recognise our First Nations people in the Australian constitution.
