Statement from Shalom Gamarada:

The Shalom Gamarada Indigenous Residential Scholarship Program wholeheartedly supports the reforms called for by the Uluru Statement from the Heart. Our program has been supporting Indigenous students for 15 years and its mission is to help close the gap by increasing the number of Indigenous professionals. As an organisation that is intimately connected to Indigenous Australians, we recognise and stand in solidarity with them and support their right to have a voice on all issues that directly affect them. The time has come for this right to be constitutionally protected.

Statement from the Shalom College Indigenous Working Group

On behalf of the First Nations students at Shalom College, we write that we support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the reforms it calls for: Voice, Treaty and Truth. We support a constitutionally enshrined Voice to Parliament that would allow all First Nations people to have a say on the issues that directly affect us. It is crucial that the Voice is constitutionally enshrined to ensure it isn’t abolished. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an important call for change that should be listened to.
