Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
It calls for structural reform including constitutional change!
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
So that the Voice itself is guaranteed in the constitution!
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
To be able to speak up and and have a voice for the wider community and possibly having a step closer to something being done
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
So that First Nation people have more to say over what impacts them and their rights. Having the power to have something that can positively impact these people.
