It's time for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to have a constitutionally enshrined voice in parliament. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is important to all Australians, the essential step needed to ensure reconciliation of indigenous and non-indigenous people in Australia.
3 steps are key:
1. The government must honour its election commitment to a referendum once a model for the Voice has been settled;
2. Enabling legislation for the Voice must be passed after a referendum has been held in the next term of Parliament; and
3. The membership model for the National Voice must ensure previously unheard Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the same chance of being selected as established leadership figures.
