The Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP
Minister for Indigenous Australians
Canberra ACT 2600
Dear Minister Wyatt,
I am writing to lend my support to a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the
Constitution as envisaged in the Uluru Statement. I believe all Australians will benefit from
It is critical that the Voice to Parliament is a voice for all indigenous Australians, just as the
Parliament itself provides voice for all Australians. For too long the Commonwealth
government has relied on a few selected high-profile leaders to speak on behalf of indigenous
Australians, without ensuring that the aspirations and concerns of all Aboriginal and Torres
Strait people are heard.
The Coalition government made an election commitment to the development of an inclusive
model for the Voice and to a referendum. I call on this Government to honour this
commitment. Following the success of a referendum, I also call for enabling legislation for
the Voice to be passed in the first term of Parliament following the referendum.
Thank you for your consideration.
Dr Alice Hill
