Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Uluru statement from the heart is important because it gives a voice to those who aren’t being heard.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
It’s very important to be enshrined the voice to parliament in the constitution rather than legislation as legislation change is easy where as constitutionally gives their voice more protection and ensures it will be heard for generations to come.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
A voice to parliament will improve everyone’s lives as when you help a under represented group it leads to better outcomes for them and this spreads through the community and life’s everyone up
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
I think it is so essential for indigenous people to have a day in matters that affect them because they currently do not and there needs to be change. If nothing changes nothing will ever get better.
Kind regards
