Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is important as we need to recognise and hero the voices of the oldest living culture on our planet.

Why do you think Australia needs a Voice to Parliament?
As a country we need this change so we can walk forward together to a better future.

Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Constitutional reforms are the only way to make lasting changes and quite simply it is the right thing to do.

Why do you think Indigenous people should have a Voice to Parliament?
Indigenous people are the rightful owners of this land. We need to give voice to and empower those who are the most disadvantaged by the colonial systems that were forcefully put in place all those years ago.

Yours sincerely,
