To whom it may concern
Submission to Co-design process
I was born in the UK, have lived in several countries, am an immigrant to Australia and have, with my family, been an Australian citizen for over two years.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Uluru statement is a clear and compelling cry for better treatment that all Australians should listen to.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Autonomy and freedom are the only ways in which we can work together as one Australia. Denying the rights and responsibilities of first nations people is wrong.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
A constitutional change will enshrine the principles, legislation is for the details.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
A voice to Parliament would allow all communities in Australia to heal.
I hope that short term politicking won’t stop this important change going through.
